Question

I am HIV positive, will this affect my chances of getting nose surgery?

Do I need to declare this in the consultation?

Answer

It is always important to discuss your medical history with prospective surgeons as it may influence the outcome of your intervention.

On its own, HIV is not a formal contraindication for rhinoplasty, but the medication that you are on may conflict with individual surgeons' typical practice.
