The Longevity of Rhinoplasty: How Long Can You Expect Your Results to Last?

As a board-certified plastic surgeon with specialized experience in rhinoplasty, I have seen firsthand the transformative effects this procedure can have on a person's appearance and confidence.


is a popular cosmetic surgery that involves reshaping the nose to improve its appearance and function. It is a permanent body modification procedure, meaning that the changes made during surgery will last a lifetime. However, it's important to understand that even with an excellent surgical technique, some patients may still require revision surgery over time. After undergoing nose surgery, it's common for the nose to swell initially.

This is a natural part of the healing process and over time, the swelling will subside and scar tissue will form. These early changes are indications of the underlying changes happening at the base of the nose. It's important to keep in mind that the aging process begins with surgery, so it's crucial to choose a skilled and experienced surgeon who can achieve your desired results. Fortunately, advancements in surgical techniques have greatly improved the long-term results of rhinoplasty. In the past, patients who underwent rhinoplasties at a younger age may not have had access to these advanced techniques, resulting in less satisfactory long-term outcomes.

However, with newer and more advanced techniques, we are now able to achieve better and longer-lasting results for our patients. Despite these advancements, it's important to note that even with an excellent surgical technique, some patients may still require revision surgery over time. This is especially true for patients who have undergone rhinoplasty at a younger age and are now in their 40s or 50s. It's not uncommon to see significant changes in the noses of celebrities who had rhinoplasty in their 20s and are now much older. Revision rhinoplasty is a more complex procedure than the initial surgery, making it crucial to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience in this area. I, Dr.
