Do I really have to do two operations for nose and boobs? Or are there surgeons truly great at both in SF Bay Area?

Do I really have to do two operations for nose and boobs?
If you are in good health, in most cases, it should be possible to safely combine a rhinoplasty surgery along with a breast augmentation/lift. In our practice we do routinely combine these types of procedures. Seek out a board certified plastic surgeon with extensive breast and rhinoplasty experience. Best wishes, Dr. Lepore.
Combined Breast and Nose Suyrgery
Combining breast and nose surgery is common and a safe approach. your recovery will be a bit harder the first couple of days, but not excessively. Your nasal splints will be removed around one week after surgery, and the healing of your breasts will be evaluated at the same time. It does make it slightly more work on your part to find a surgeon with whom you feel comfortable for both procedures. But, the two surgeries do go well together as far as the operation and the recovery is concerned. Dr. B
Breast augmentation and rhinoplasty combination surgery
Combining rhinoplasty and breast augmentation into a single procedure is safe and reasonable. I've done this combination as a solo surgeon, and have also done it with another surgeon - each of us performing our respective parts of the procedure. Obviously, you need to find a surgeon who is comfortable with the nuances of both of these very different cosmetic procedure. We are happy to see you up in Seattle and get you scheduled.

Is combining breast augmentation and nasal surgery a good idea? I don't think so
You quite possibly need 2 surgeons if you really want the top doctors in breast augmentation and rhinoplasty. Also, nasal surgery is a relatively contaminated surgery and can get bacteria into the blood stream which can increase the risks of infection and capsular contracture if you are putting in a breast implant at the same time. So, for both of these reasons I'd recommend separate surgeries and maybe 2 surgeons. I'd do the nasal surgery first to get the bacterial issues done.
Rhinoplasty with breast augmention and mastopexy
I frequently combine Rhinoplasty with Breast Augmentation. With combined procedures you will have shortened down time and you will obviously need fewer days off of work. We have many patients that travel from all over the world for combined procedures. The good news is you are a short plane ride from SFO to LAX. Best of luck in your search!
Finding the right surgeons to work together
Thank you for asking about your planned rhinoplasty and breast augmentation.
- If you are determined to combine the surgery, with two different surgeons at a specific time, you best approach is to ask the surgeons if they can and will work together.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
There are a few surgeons in LA that perform both well, myself included. Patients from San Fran usually come down for two days for their procedure and are back in a week for splint removal and breast check. The following visit is in a month, and then 6 months. Best of luck!
Hello, thank you for your inquiry. Yes, you can have both procedures done at once. I suggest consulting a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss procedure, this surgery should be approx 3-4 hours max. Best of luck.
I would suggest finding a board certified plastic surgeon in your area for the combination procedure. It would be better to find someone in your area for follow up care.
