How long does rhinoplasty last?

Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients inquire as to whether they will need a repeat procedure in 10-15 years after their initial rhinoplasty. If performed properly, rhinoplasty should last your entire life as long as their is no major trauma to the nose. Unlike eyelid surgery or a facelift, rhinoplasty is a permanent procedure and a nose is provided for life. The healing process should not allow the tip of the nose to droop as it would with normal aging as long as the tip was supported adequately.
