Is it safe to have a rhinoplasty 3 months after a breast revision for capsule contracture?

I developed capsule contracture and I'm a year post op. I'm having a breast revision capsulectomy. I will get the scar tissue removed and going a cup size bigger. I would like to know if it's safe to have a rhinoplasty done 3 months later? Can this increase my risk for getting capsule contracture again?

Nose surgery after breast surgery

There should be no problem with this, although doing these at the same operation may have a risk. All the best, Dr Steve Merten, Sydney Australia

No problem

Dont worry, you can have your Rhynoplasty done. It wont affect your breast implants.

Timing of Multiple Surgeries

Having a rhinoplasty 3 months after capsulectomy surgery will in no way increase your risk of breast capsular contracture.  Many times we perform multiple procedures at the same time.  But waiting a month or 2 or 3 between surgeries is not a problem.  Good luck!
