Thank you for your question about your revision rhinoplasty
I am so glad you have a new baby on the way.
- You are near the third trimester, so about 3-4 months to go.
- Then you may breast feed and need to recover from pregnancy.
- Plan your revision rhinoplasty 6-12 m onths after pregnancy or after breast feeding, if you breast feed.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic or Facial Plastic Surgeon.
Hope you find this information helpful.
Good question. Congratulations on your pregnancy! It's a good idea to wait approximately 3 months after your delivery or until you finish breastfeeding so that your body can return to normal before undergoing surgery. Revision rhinoplasty is one of the most
challenging of all cosmetic surgeries, so be sure to look for an experienced revision rhinoplasty
specialist who has a strong aesthetic sense and the talent and experience to
refine the nose as needed.
Your hormones should not have a significant effect on the result of revision rhinoplasty. We usually wait 2-3 month after childbirth because the body needs time to normalize after giving birth. Pregnancy can affect blood sugar, blood pressure, coagulation, and even your basic psychological state. After these things normalize, you should be ready for revision rhinoplasty. Typically if you are still breastfeeding, we may wait a bit longer.
There are a number of factors that need to be weighed after rhinoplasty and pregnancy. Of course if you are planning on breast feeding, you should wait until after that is complete. If not, at least give it a few months after delivery to lose most of the pregancy weight and for your home routine to get back to normal.
It is best to wait at least 2 months after delivering a baby befor electing to undergo a revision rhinoplasty, to make sure the body's physiology is back to normal. It's also important wait at least a year before undergoing a revision rhinoplasty after the primary rhinoplasty.
Congratulations! You should probably wait several months until you get back to your normal weight and stop breast feeding. Best of luck.
In general, I would advise you to wait 3 months after having your child before considering revision rhinoplasty. It takes about 2 months for your body to return to normal. If you are breast feeding, the anesthesiologist can use medications that are not secreted in significant amounts in breast milk. As for the outcome of a revision rhinoplasty, I think that an experienced revision rhinoplasty surgeon is the most important consideration that you will have to make. I would advise you to see a board certified plastic surgeon or ENT with experience in revision rhinoplasty. Good luck!
