What is the difference between Stanstrom technique (cartilage scoring) Vs classical Mustarde technique?
Thank you for your question.
I believe you may be focusing on the incorrect issue. Ultimately your Plastic Surgeon's technique will use a variety of methods, and even some combined. His expertise and experience result in his fine-tuning this combination. So, for you to make a decision based on the merits of 1 method over another means you will likely not make the best decision for yourself,
I recommend you consult with a specialist Plastic surgeon(called Board Certified' in the US, and 'Plastic Surgeon' here in Australia). Listen to his recommendations, tell him your wants and concerns. Look at his past surgeries. If you are not comfortable with his approach, then seek another opinion till you get the right option for you.
In my experience, the communication between you is of absolute importance.
I wish you well in your search.
