Should My Midface Be Augmented Before A Rhinoplasty?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Can a cleft nose rhinoplasty be done on a foundation of a midface that has been augmented with custom silicone implants? Or should the augmentation be done first followed by a secondary rhinoplasty?

A: Good question. In a building the foundation needs to be done before you do the roof. Similarly the midface augmentation, on which the nose will sit, should be completed first before the nose is done
