Graft removal following rhinoplasty.
Mario J. Imola, MD, DDS, FRCSC, FACS.
Cartilage or fascia grafts can be removed, revised, or repositioned during a revision rhinoplasty. It is important to realize that it may not be possible to restore one's nose to the look exactly like it did before surgery. It is also important to realize that if additional cartilage is required for a revision procedure, that it may need to harvested from the ear or possibly even the rib. Revision rhinoplasty procedures should be entered into very cautiously and I would recommended seeking guidance from a board certified surgeon who has experience and a strong interest in revision rhinoplasty.
