t is one of the method of rhinoplasty. There are lots of different ways of rhinoplasty because everyone has different nose and situation. So we will discuss about one of the method which is rhinoplasty with rib cartilage.
Rib cartilage is from the rib and we also call it as chest cartilage. It is located at the front chest between rib and sternum. If you find ‘rib cartilage’ from the internet rhinoplasty comes as recommendation. So it has close relationship between each other.
Many people prefer to use rib cartilage for their rhinoplasty because it has less possibility of inflammation or complications because it is autologous implant. If you don’t have any complication with regular implant you can use it, but if you are worrying about possible complication, this can be one of the method for rhinoplasty
In past, they’ve used rib cartilage to re-make the shape of nose for those who had abnormal nose shape. Now a days, they are using rib cartilage if the patient had previous rhinoplasty but it looks like the nose is too short or the tip is upward or have any complications, and mostly if they went through so many revision surgery and regular implant cannot be used anymore
If you ask ‘why they are not using septum of nose cartilage or ear cartilage? ‘, my answer is the amount that we can get it from nose or ear is limited so it is appropriate for the nose tip but not as much as to adjust height of nose bridge. Rib cartilage is enough to make shape of whole nose so it is appropriate that nose or ear cartilage.
As above, rhinoplasty with rib cartilage can reduce the possibility of complication and it can design the whole shape of the nose so it can be a good method for the rhinoplasty.
