I am planning on undergoing rhinoplasty, but was wondering if it is better to have the non-surgical jaw-line reduction prior. I mean is face shape considered in the size/shape of rhino? If so, I would need to have the Botox then wait 4-6 weeks and then have rhino performed? Why does it take 4-6 weeks to see results of jaw-line reduction? Thanks
for me the botox would not affect my decision on how to do the rhinoplasty. it takes 4 to 6 weeks because we are not trying to stop a wrinkle but to atrophy a very large muscle.
