Antibiotics prior to rhinoplasty

There is no issue taking antibiotics prior to rhinoplasty. I normally recommend it one day prior to surgery. You need to check with your surgeon regarding your treatment.

Antibiotics taken before a rhinoplasty

Antibiotics taken before rhinoplasty should not be a problem, however it's best to check with your operative surgeon.

Antibiotics Taken Prior to Rhinoplasty

Dear damagecontrol, Ask your surgeon if he/she has any concerns with antibiotic usage prior to your procedure. Personally my concern would be what were you taking the antibiotics for? Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
