Is Ear Cartilage Too Weak to Make Lateral Crural Extension Grafts?
After Septo-Rhinoplasty, I now require lateral crural extension grafts due to valve collapse.
However, my doctor is unsure whether I have enough septal cartilage left to make the grafts with and has suggested the use of my ear cartilage if there is not enough.
However, I am concerned as I have now been informed by another doctor that ear cartilage will be too weak to use. Is this true? Thank you.
