Roaccutane and rhinoplasty? Watch
Hi so I’m meant to be starting accurate next month but I’m also planning on getting a nose job and now I’ve heard you can’t do both at the same time? Does anyone know if this is true? Would you recommend the nose job or the accurate first? How long would I have to wait after the nose job to start the accutane?
Best practice suggests 6 month wait following Roacutane. I didn’t know about this and just had Rhinoplasty (nose job) 7 days go only waiting about 6 weeks after stopping a 6-7 month second course of Roacutane.
So far so good, it’s only been a week, I’ve read it can cause scarring/skin healing issues due to skin sensitivity so if I’d have known I’d have waited longer before having it.
Personally I’d do this Roacutane first again, because the healing process, bandages and splint etc on your nose and face is uncomfortable already, I can’t imagine how much worse it would be if you had acne too. Also the acne might impair the healing process especially if you get spots on the nose or near the incisions. More importantly acne associated bacteria could cause infection following rhinoplasty!
