Rib Cartilage Graft Can Be a Great Option For a Revision Rhinoplasty
Rib graft in rhinoplasty.
It is routine and you should not be concerned if it is suggested by your surgeon, but by all means ask questions about likelihood and how it will be done (usually a very small incision on the chest).
I hope this helps.
Rib cartilage for revision rhinoplasty
It can be used on the bridge and tip of the nose. The surgeon needs to be careful in patients in thin skin. Camouflaging techniques and smooth edges are important in thin skin.
I would recommend consulting with a surgeon who is experienced with rib as there are many nuances to harvesting and carving it. Safety comes first.
