Can Upper Blepharoplasty and Rhinoplasty Be Done During The Same Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I would like to know if upper eye lid surgery and rhinoplasty can be done in this same visitation. As I would like to minimize my down time with one visit. 

* what will be the pricing for eye lid and rhinoplasty combined. If able to. 

Or separate. 

* do you have any photos I can refer to for noses such as my type? 

* I would like to achieve a smaller narrow nose with a bridge. 

Thank you. 

A: You can do an upper blepharoplasty and rhinoplasty during the same surgery.

I would refer you to one of my websites, and search under the rhinoplasty photo gallery. I would also refer you to another of my websites, and place in the search box on the home page the term, augmentation rhinoplasty, where you can look at the case studies.

While looking at other patient results has its merits what really matters is what type of changes can be done in your nose. This is where the role of computer imaging has value. To do so I will need a side and oblique view picture which, when combined with the front view picture you have already sent, will allow this rhinoplasty predictive imaging to be done. This is especially important in your nose because there are significant limitations in how of a smaller more nose shape can be achieved  in the thick-skinned nose with a congenital lack of framework support
