You could have rhinoplasty and breast augmentation a week apart.
You are asking all the right questions. Frankly, we have done some sequential operations one day apart. Yes, it is ideal to have both surgeons operate sequentially on the same day. Are you sure there is no way that can be worked out? Generally, it is feasible, even if you do not work in the same surgical facility, exceptions can be made. I would definitely look into that before committing to two separate sessions because it is not economical of time and probably costs more. Generally, when you combine procedures, you save on the operating room and the anesthesiologist fee. Now those two operations do not interfere with each other so the only question about the interval is how short can it be.
The one rule would be to have the breast augmentation first. The reason is, if you have the rhinoplasty and then they are putting you to sleep for the breast augmentation, there are going to be issues with the anesthesia which involves the mouth and face. The anesthesiologist has to put an oxygen mask on your face, and there are other reasons why it is not a good idea to have any kind of manipulation of the face when you are having another operation.
If in the end there is no way to avoid having these done sequentially, then check with both doctors and see what they think would be an adequate interval. You could even speak to the anesthesiologist about that, but I do not think that will be an issue. I would recommend doing the breast augmentation first. Below the collar bone is one territory, and above the collar bone is another, and hopefully all will go well for you.
