(Augmentation rhinoplasty using rib cartilage by Dr. Jin Hong-Ryul)
Silicone implant and Gore-tex implant widely use for aesthetic rhinoplasty in Korea.
However, in the case that patient has problem with implant, there is another option.
It means nose job surgery with the only use of self-tissue or Autologous cartilage.
No use implants such as Silicone or Gore-tex.
Self-tissue (Autologous-cartilage) is rib cartilage, nasal septum cartilage, ear cartilage, fascia and dermis harvested from patient’s body.
Ear cartilage is a small cartilage with a curvy shape.
It is mostly used to cover the nasal tip area.
Nasal septal cartilage
Nasal septal cartilage is located inside the nose.
It mainly apply to lengthen the nose length or add a projection in the nose tip.
The rib cartilage is harvested from chest.
It has a great amount to build the structure for the nose surgery.
It mainly apply for revision rhinoplasty but nowadays the rib cartilage is in a higher demand for the aesthetic (primary) rhinoplasty as well.
This surgery is the safest and finest surgery result compared to foreign implants rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty without implant surgery prevents or lower the risk of inflammation, skin color changing and skin thinning with the natural result.
