Rhinoplasty and Gastric Balloon
The presence of a gastric balloon will not affect your candidacy for rhinoplasty. The use of nicotine will, however, pose more of a threat to your outcome as your healing complication rate will increase.
Rhinoplasty and a gastric balloon
It is possible to undergo a rhinoplasty procedure in with a gastric balloon and place. Much more important is to make sure your BMI is less than 34 to undergo a safe anesthetic for cosmetic surgery.
Gastric balloons and nose jobs
As long as your are stable and not in negative protein malnutrition after your stomach procedure, I don't see a major reason why you could not have rhinoplasty done with a gastric balloon present.
Rhinoplasty for Patient with Gastric Balloon
The presence of a gastric balloon will not interfere with rhinoplasty surgery. However, I would want to get medical clearance from your physician.
Hello and thank you for your question. As long as you obtain medical clearance from your medical doctor, you can safely proceed forward with surgery.
Best wishes and good luck.

Yes it is possible to undergo rhinoplasty surgery in the presence of an abdominal balloon. Best of luck.
lke1111, I know of no contraindication but this would not be my call. I would send you back to your physician and get them to clear you for surgery. They know more about this than your facial plastic surgeon; in other words you need clearance for surgery and that clearance should come from your family MD as well as any other previous treating physicians that are relevant. Good luck!

Hello! I would recommend getting clearance from your physician after a thorough physical but yes you can have a rhinoplasty as long as you are otherwise healthy, and you would need to discontinue nicotine for at least 2 weeks prior to the procedure. Good luck!
