No! The maxilla forms part of the nose. It would be improvident.

But I figured even though I know I'll still HATE my nose after surgery no matter how much they try to tell me it'll probably improve, I'm going to wait to get a rhinoplasty until I've settled into my new jaw.

I asked my ortho and he said I'd have to wait 6 months after jaw surgery to get my nose done but I'm sure when you're paying private which I no doubt will be, they'll do it for you maybe within 4 months! :)

When are you due to have jaw surgery?
