Augmentation Rhinoplasty

  • Jose Guerrerosantos


To perform aesthetic corrections in the nose, the plastic surgeon usually makes surgical maneuvers in occasions reducing the contour and volume of the nasal tissues, especially the bone and the cartilage, but in occasions either in primary or secondary rhinoplasty, the surgeon should increase contour and nasal volume. The authors discuss cartilage grafts in rhinoplasty, many ways of using fascia graft in aesthetic rhinoplasty, the rolled fascia graft, fragmented cartilage graft covered with fascia in primary rhinoplasty, and special problems in rhinoplasty.
