Simultaneous rhinoplasty and maxillomandibular osteotomies: Indications and contraindications.


Functional and esthetic correction of a dentofacial deformity may require not only maxillary or mandibular osteotomies but also a rhinoplasty. Rigid internal fixation makes it possible to perform rhinoplasty and maxillary osteotomies simultaneously. Nevertheless, to plan rhinoplasty correctly it is of paramount importance to predict changes of the nose that will follow osteotomy of the maxilla. The authors present their experience concerning the surgical technique, advantages, and disadvantages of rhinoplasty in combination with orthognathic surgery.
