Rhinoplasty after a tonsillectomy
It is probably best to wait at least a few weeks to get over the tonsillectomy pain and discomfort before electing to undergo a cosmetic procedure on the nose. Rhinoplasty is a difficult endeavor, so choose your Surgeon very wisely based on extensive experience.
Thanks for your question. Tonsillectomy tends to be a very painful surgery, so you should give yourself a good 4-6 weeks in-between. Good luck!
Hello and thank you for your question. I recommend waiting one month in between surgeries. Make sure you specifically look at before and after
pictures of real patients who have had this surgery performed by your surgeon
and not just a computer animation system. The most important
aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek
consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate
you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.

I would wait at least a month between surgeries. You want to basically be mostly healed after one before you have the other. You could do either first.
