Any suggestions on onlay peck graft?

In the absence of significant trauma, it would be unusual for any nasal cartilage grafts to come loose. Most nasal cartilage grafts are sewn in place. I typically use PDS suture...which is absorbable. However, it takes about 3-4 months for the suture to absorb...just long enough for your body to grow scar tissue that will keep the graft in place.

You are confused. Sutured grafts are more secure and less apt to be misaligned then onlay/Peck grafts. That's why most surgeons like to suture grafts.
Best of luck!
