Nose job and an FUE procedure...which procedure should I do first?
Thank you for posting this question. I’m a facial plastic surgeon as well as a hair restoration surgeon, so this question is right up my alley. It doesn’t matter whether you have the facial surgery or the hair surgery first, but it would be important to wait about 3 weeks to a month in between the procedures to make sure that the wounds from the first procedure are healed and will not be damaged or infected or otherwise disturbed in the second procedure.
The one exception is a brow lift, with either a trichophytic or endoscopic approach. If a patient was planning on having one of these procedures, I would advise that the facial surgery be performed first, and then wait 6 weeks following surgery to perform the hair transplant. This is because of the incisions that will occur in and around the frontal hairline with these two types of brow lifting.
I hope this information is helpful to you.
