When rhinoplasty was not popular, patients wanted to have dramatic change.
And silicone implant was a good choice for it.
However, As rhinoplasty getting popular, patient’s trend has changed to the natural looking nose shape that harmonious with face.
Therefore, Silicone implant is not a good choice anymore.
Furthermore, silicone implant became known to cause complications. For example a nasal contraction, infection or skin redness.
“Autologous materials is the best choice”
Dr. Jin Hong-Ryul has an abundant experience in using “Rib cartilage rhinoplasty” and “Diced cartilage in fascia rhinoplasty”.
This patient had a silicone implant on her nasal bridge, and her tip was round.
After silicone implant removal, used her rib cartilage for nasal bridge and tip.
This is a case of revision rhinoplasty using “diced cartilage in fascia”.
Dr. Jin Hong-Ryul prefers to use autologous materials. Because it makes the nose to natural shape, and lower complications.
He harvests the rib with small incision (less than 1.5 cm) without any complications such as severe pain.
Warping of rib cartilage is also one of the concern about rib cartilage rhinoplasty. This can be prevented with stacking of cartilage pieces or dicing of cartilage and wrapping with fascia.
“The balance between nasal bridge and tip is important for harmony rhinoplasty.”
Too high nasal tip or too much projection, and pointed tip is not harmonious with nasal bridge.
This patient had a hump on her nasal bridge, and tip was lower.
Her nose doesn’t look balanced and harmonious.
So, removed hump and made nose balanced.
The traditional rhinoplasty will do just remove hump and use “I type silicone implant” to make nasal bridge smooth.
But Dr. Jin “Didn’t use any implant.”
Therefore, rhinoplasty must consider of the profile line from a forehead to nose to lips.
“The best result that you can get is having a natural looking nose that doesn’t attention to other people.”
