Can I have rhinoplasty with braces?

Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients are teenage rhinoplasty patients seeking to improve their nose. Some of these patient or even adult patients may have braces or invaslign. They will frequently ask if they can have rhinoplasty with braces. This will truly depend on how much correction remains with the braces. If there is a significant overbite and the chin is still recessed, then it may be wise to wait on rhinoplasty until the overbite is corrected with braces. However, if the issue with the teeth is minor, then the rhinoplasty can proceed while the patient still has braces.
