Is rhinoplasty permanent?

Unlike other cosmetic surgeries such as a facelift, eyelid surgery, or neck lift, rhinoplasty is a permanent surgery. Once the swelling has subsided and everything has healed, the results of rhinoplasty are typically permanent. The nose will not age like the face and eyelids will continue to do. The tip of the nose will not droop over time, if it was sufficiently supported with cartilage grafts, as it would naturally.

If performed properly, rhinoplasty will create a more refined, permanent improvement to the nose.
