A small DCF (diced cartilage fascia) tailored for your radix will provide a permanent and natural appearing result with smooth contours. Cartilage from your septum (inside your nose) or your ear can be finely diced and wrapped with a small piece of fascia from your scalp to create a DCF graft. Silicone tends to have visible edges at the radix and can appear very unnatural over the years as your skin thins around it.
