Rhinoplasty before jaw surgery? I'm 23 and I want to get jaw surgery for my TMJ and asymmetrical face, but want to wait until I'm 25+ to get it. I'm planning to get rhinoplasty in a couple of weeks, but many have said to get your jaw surgery done first.
As dr fleming stated, you would be better off having any surgery to your upper and lower jaws first, then the rhinoplasty.
Are you sure you need jaw surgery? Have you consulted with an oral surgeon? An orthodontist? It appears you may need a team to work with you to get things just right.
Consult with them first.
