How Long Should I Wait After A Rhinoplasty and Chin Implant To Have More Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley,Also I got a rhinoplasty and chin implant and lipo done several days ago. But I would like to do more lipo (I believe you call it a buccal myectomy) and custom implants that might replace the existing chin implant if required. How long should I wait before getting another procedure done?

A:Three months after the last procedure would be sufficient. If a custom chin implant is needed for a replacement for the standard chin implant just done now would be a good time to get started since that will take 3 months to design and have ready for surgery.
