Why do patients need to stop using Accutane 6-12 months before a rhinoplasty or rhinoplasty revision?
What are the problems that could occur if someone is on Accutane during a rhinoplasty revision?

Accutane interferes with wound healing. It slows down the healing process, thus prolonging the inflammatory phase. Poor wound healing in any surgery can cause a poor surgical result.
