Autologous rib cartilage is harvested from cartilage part of patient’s own rib.
Since it is rich in its amount, it can cover both nasal bridge and nasal tip.
With its amount and strong support, it can be used in nose revision surgery (contracted nose) or nasal reconstruction.
But it leaves scar in harvested site. And rib cartilage also has warping problem after rhinoplasty. However, it can be minimized or prevented depending on know-how or technique of surgeon.
