The changes your face would have following weight lose will not effect the aesthetic planning for rhinoplasty.
Hi, I have performed many Rhinoplasty Surgeries over the past 30 years. A weight loss of 20 pounds would not affect the aesthetic planning on how a Rhinoplasty would improve the appearance of your nose or the aesthetic result if the weight was lost following the Rhinoplasty.Hope this helps.
A rhinoplasty should improve the balance and harmony of the facial features. This shape and size the nose are not changed secondary to changes your weight. I see no aesthetic advantages or disadvantages of reaching a goal weight for rhinoplasty.
Hope this helps
Although, it always pays to be as close to your goal weight as possible, being 20 lbs from your normal BMI should have no effect on the results of your rhinoplasty. Check with your surgeon for their recommendations, as well. Best wishes, Dr. Lepore.
Weight loss will have no effect int the rhinoplasty, so it wouldn't matter if you lost the weight before surgery.
Anesthesia risks are less and recovery easier if you are at a healthy and maintainable (perhaps not ideal) weight. For that reason I would not rush into your rhinoplasty although rhinoplasty decisions have little to do with facial and cheek "fullness" IMO.

Thank you for the question and for body sculpting procedures I would say yes but for a rhinoplasty if you are in good health and close to goal weight, it should not make a difference
Yes, it is not excellent idea to be at your ideal body weight before opting to undergo cosmetic surgery. In addition to better facial proportions, more importantly is you body's reaction to the anesthesia. In our practice, anesthesiologists will not perform anesthesia on patients with a BMI over 34. This is for patient safety reasons.
I think it's great that you have chosen to be healthy! In general, the nose itself remains relatively unchanged with weight fluctuations so there is no inherent downside to having the operation earlier.
However, as part of the recovery you will be unable to maintain your aggressive exercise regimen for about 2 months (1st month pretty strict) and risk stalling your weight loss efforts. I would recommend you keep grinding and then reward yourself when you reach your goal. Good luck!
