Rhinoplasty v breast augmentation

Plastic surgery procedures have become more accepted and more common throughout the last decade. Now women and men alike are undergoing these operations to change their appearance to what they envision. Rhinoplasty, commonly known as a nose job, is one of the most common procedures performed in the United States on both women and men. Breast Augmentations are also extremely common in the U.S., and often times women desire to get both procedures done. When this is the case, a choice has to be made in regards to which surgery is done first. On average, women choose to have a breast augmentation first.

When choosing to have any type of plastic surgery procedure, it is important to do extensive research. You should know, before going into a consultation, the average cost of the procedure you would like done, the success rate and the legitimacy and track record of the surgeon you are consulting with: as well as the expected recovery time of the surgery.

As a plastic surgeon that specializes in rhinoplasty, I have had many clients come in who have had a breast augmentation when they were younger, but due to outside circumstances like financial stability, children rearing, and a busy career, have had to wait many years for their rhinoplasty procedure. All throughout that time they have to look at their face in the mirror and see the imbalance that they have wished to change. These clients often express their regret to having gotten a breast augmentation first, especially when there are so many ways to give the appearance of having larger breasts then you have, and you can mask it even further with clothes. It is more difficult to change the appearance of your nose and you cannot hide it at all. Because of that women who have already had either procedure recommend undergoing a nose job before a breast augmentation.
