Abstract

Substantial premaxillary augmentation is necessary as an adjunctive treatment in most cleft rhinoplasties and in those patients exhibiting an acute nasolabial angle due to retrusion of the premaxilla. We describe our technique of evaluation and treatment of this condition using a custom-carved piece of material made from a woven combination of Teflon and organic fibers (Proplast). Detailed technical illustrations as well as patient results are demonstrated. We have found this technique in our hands to be a simple, safe, and effective means of correction of significant premaxillary retrusion.
