Cartilage for Bridge Augmentation?
I just went to Asia for rhinoplasty & contacted a lot of board certified plastic surgeons there but they all wanted to use silicone & said they did not use cartilage for the bridge, only the tip. That made me confused. Cartilage can be used for the bridge, right? If septal cartilage can be used to augment the bridge, then would it feel weird in a way? I'm a bit worried because cartilage is softer than bone...? Wouldn't my nose bridge feel softer? Please help clarify, thanks.
