A common question among rhinoplasty candidates is how long will they have to wait after the surgery before they can undergo another cosmetic procedure such as cheek fillers. When choosing to have any type of plastic surgery, it is extremely important to choose a highly skilled, board-certified surgeon who specializes in the types of procedures you are looking for.
Swelling after Rhinoplasty
Swelling is a natural and expected byproduct of rhinoplasty, as inflammation is a key part of the process of repairing tissue, although most of the swelling is on and around the nose, it can often spread to the eye and cheek areas as well following both rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty. Therefore, it is important to wait until a significant amount of swelling has subsided before undergoing any further cosmetic procedures such as dermal fillers, typically about one month following the procedure.
Factors Affecting Swelling After Rhinoplasty
The extent of swelling depends on many factors including age, thickness of patient’s skin, as well as lifestyle related factors, therefore, swelling follows a different pattern on a case-to-case basis. However, most patients typically notice swelling right after the procedure.
How Long to Wait for Fillers to Jaw and Cheeks After Rhinoplasty?
Following a primary rhinoplasty, swelling is usually at its peak during the first week following surgery, after which it begins to subside. In the case of a secondary or revision rhinoplasty, since it is more complicated than a primary procedure, patients should expect swelling to take a little longer to subside. It is estimated that on average, the body can take up to 3 months to complete the repair work involved in healing, after which the residual swelling subsides over many months.
Among patients who undergo both primary rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty, it is not uncommon to experience asymmetric swelling that can lead to certain areas of the nose and face to appear imbalanced. This can often lead to irregular nose contours until the nose has completely healed.
Due to the fact that both primary rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty patients may experience higher levels of facial inflammation from a cosmetic surgery procedure, it is important they wait the suggested length of time before undergoing facial filler injections.
For those who are interested in having cheek fillers following a primary or revision rhinoplasty, it is recommended they do everything possible to minimize post-operative swelling quickly.
