Am I a good candidate for African American rhinoplasty? Can it done with an upcoming tummy tuck?

I would like a rhinoplasty procedure done around the same time as my tummy tuck. Is it possible?

Hi there and thanks for your question. The answer depends upon your needs regarding the rhinoplasty and the tummy tuck. If you need aggressive liposuction the procedure can be lengthy. If you need rib cartilage grafts your operating time is increased. Discuss your aesthetic goals with a skilled BCPS. Good Luck.
