Asian Rhinoplasty Diced Cartilage Fascia Grafting
The average cost for this type of Asian rhinoplasty surgery is around $6500-7000 in this particular area of California. Don't let cost be the final determining factor for you. Seek out an experienced ethnic rhinoplasty surgeon.
Diced cartilage wrapped in fascia
Diced cartilage wrapped in fascia, in my experience, will give you the most natural-appearing result. The amount of augmentation can be precisely tailored for you. Costs will vary, but it is more expensive than synthetic implants because the surgeries take longer to harvest and fashion the grafts.
Depending on what you are looking to achieve, the diced cartilage wrapped in facial is a great way to achieve a natural appearing enhancement of Asian noses. This technique avoids the risks of extrusion, infection, movement, etc that is more common with implants. While cost is an important factor, it shouldn't be the only determining factor. If you require revision surgery, this will likely cost more than having it done right the first time.

It eliminates the risks of extrusion, and infection associated with synthetic implants, and eliminates the risk of warping seen with en bloc cartilage grafts. Results are very surgeon dependent, so choosing the right surgeon is just as important as finding the right price point.
Turkish Delight graft for augmentation rhinoplasty
A graft of wrapped diced cartilage is sometimes referred to as a ‘Turkish delight” graft. This technique was described in 2000 by a Turkish physician who wrapped diced cartilage in a hemostatic agent called Surgicel. Since then, others have described using the same techniqe wrapping diced cartilage with fascia or human dermis (AlloDerm). This technique does produce a soft, pliable graft, which may or may not resorb over time. The cost would likely be the same as any rhinoplasty, with a possible extra charge for the fascia.
