Can I get an Otoplasty and Rhinoplasty simultaneously?

Is it recommended to get an Otoplasty and a Rhinoplasty at the same time? I want to make adjustments to both my ears and my nose. I either your ears or nose depend on how the other looks I guess I may want to fix one at a time. But, if that is not the case I would love to knock both of them out in one day.

Thank you for the question and the simple answer is YES!  So go on some complimentary consultations with experts and be evaluated and compare recommendations and photos of similar patients and find your surgeon

Thanks for your question. Yes, both procedures can be performed at the same time.  I would suggest either twilight sleep anesthesia or general anesthesia.

For the otoplasty, incisions are made behind the ear and the cartilage is re-shaped.  For the nose, incisions are usually made within the nostrils so that no scar is visible.  If there are problems breathing through your nose, this can be addressed at the same time.
