Rib Cartilage Grafting For Revision Rhinoplasties

The nose possesses extremely delicate anatomy which is responsible for its shape, proportions, and position. To reconstruct this anatomy accurately, in some cases it may be necessary to resort to cartilage grafts obtained from the ribs. In this article, we will see why the rib is chosen as a source of grafts, what advantages it has, how it is used and what complications may arise.

Why are rib grafts used in some secondary rhinoplasty cases?
The use of grafts is usually necessary for patients with a history of unsatisfactory rhinoplasties or previous trauma. This is because revision patients typically need to add volume to their nose in order to supplement or replace the anatomical structures that have been damaged. The problem is that in order to do this, a large amount of cartilage is necessary.

Under normal conditions, the nasal septum and ears offer sufficient quantity and quality of cartilage to meet the needs of a typical secondary rhinoplasty. Both structures offer between 2 an..

Eliminating Your Breast Implants, What Happens?

For more than 50 years, breast implants have been the standard of treatment when talking about breast augmentation. During this time, manufacturers have released increasingly safe, resistant and durable implants and have greatly increased the options of choice in terms of sizes and shapes. All these facts, and many others, make breast augmentation one of the most popular, safe and successful types of Plastic Surgery in the US.

Fat grafting and tissue transport during rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is the most common choice for any patient seeking an aesthetic improvement of their nose. In recent years, complementary techniques have been developed to improve the results of rhinoplasty, or even replace it in small cases, one of which is the use of Fat Grafting.

In addition, several studies have shown that fat grafting has worked as effectively as cartilage grafts or solid implants in surgeries such as augmentation mammoplasty.
