Natural Alternative to Silicone - Rib Cartilage
A silicone implant is a great option for breast augmentation but it is not a great choice for the face. When performing complex revision rhinoplasty, the best choice of reconstructive material is your own rib cartilage. Rib cartilage can be harvested safely through a small incision. It is your body's own cells so there is an extremely low complication profile. The cartilage can be carved into any size and shape that is required and with time it becomes incorporated into the surrounding tissue. Rib cartilage is the best option for graft material in revision rhinoplasty and it is the best material to use when straightening the nose.

Alternatives to silicone nasal implant
Dear Mustafa,A natural alternative to a silicone nasal implant to augment your nasal dorsum is rib cartilage. It is difficult to appreciate from just the frontal view your saddle nose deformity. If you could also include some profile pictures that would be helpful. In general rib cartilage is preferred, because it is your own cartilage and not a synthetic substance. Your body usually has less risk of rejection and infection when using your own cartilage. However it is not without its owns risks. I recommend consulting with a facial plastic or plastic surgeon to discuss the potential options for a revision rhinoplasty.
