Will rhinoplasty last forever?

Unlike facial rejuvenation surgery such as a mini facelift, eyelid surgery, or neck lift, rhinoplasty will last forever. While other areas of the face will continue to age after surgery and you will need a repeat procedure, rhinoplasty, when done properly, should last the test of time. As long as the surgeon adequately supports the nose with cartilage grafts and supports the nasal tip, the effects of aging such as a droopy tip should not be apparent after rhinoplasty. In addition, the scarring that occurs around the cartilage after rhinoplasty will continue to provide ligamentous support to the nose preventing aging.
