The best time to go through nose surgery – and when you shouldn’t

Best time go through Rhinoplasty

If you are thinking about having a rhinoplasty, you must consider what period of time in your life would be best for the procedure to take place, or more importantly – when you definitely shouldn’t do it.


Stress or life changing events

There are certain times in your life when it’s probably better to not make such an important change as a nose surgery. If you’re going through a period of emotional stress or have big life changes going on, you might want to reconsider the procedure. If you for example are in poor health or going through relationship changes or family issues, this is not the best time for a nose surgery. Have the surgery when you are in calm and balanced state of mind, with no external influences that might make you regret your decision afterwards.

Season doesn’t matter – at most times

Nose surgery could take place at any time during the year, whether it’s winter or summer. However, a good time for you would of course be when you can get some time off work. If you for example have an appendectomy, your employer will understand that time away is necessary for the operation and recovery. A rhinoplasty could be looked upon differently, and therefore the summer leave might be the only possible time for you.


Something that could affect the recovery period after undergoing nose surgery is whether or not you suffer from allergies or reactions to seasonal changes. More often than not, this is not a big issue – but if you for example are really sensitive to spring or summer pollen you might want to wait until another time of the year.
