Many surgeons prefer to postpone Rhinoplasty Surgery and perform it after Patient has grown till his or her maturity. Male reaches to their maturity after 18 and Female reaches maturity after 15 to 16 years. To wait till the maturity is considered must by some Plastic Surgeons including Dr Narendra Kaushik. The reason behind this to not disturb the facial growth and wait until the face is fully grown. Nasal Septum is one of the important factors in the midface growth and it keeps on changing until the maturity. Any changes in the septum will hinder the development of midface leaving midface imbalanced and causing deformity.

Dr Kaushik at Olmec Healthcare Advice patient to quit smoking before 1 or month of any surgery that he performs in day to day to life. The main reason behind his asking the patient to quit smoking is “Smoking reduces the blood circulation in the body and increases the amount of carbon monoxide in the blood stream”. Increased Carbon Monoxide in the blood stream will not let blood circulate and as a result, there can be a problem in inter-operative and post-operative care. There are many chances of increased complication if you are a regular smoker. Smoking has a huge impact on healing after the surgery.
Moreover, any kind of drug addiction is strictly denied before the surgery.
