Cartilage is a natural tissue of the body and has long been used as an implant material in surgery.

2. Who needs rhinoplasty?

Cartilage-covered rhinoplasty is suitable for those who want to raise the bridge of the nose, improve the shape of the nose or raise the tip of the nose. Rhinoplasty has become popular with Asians because Asians tend to have underdeveloped nasal bones and cartilage, so the bridge of the nose is often convex, the tip of the nose often tends to be narrow and small.

3. What is ear cartilage rhinoplasty?

Depending on where the cartilage is taken, there will be different terms such as: Rhinoplasty with rib cartilage, Rhinoplasty with ear cartilage or Rhinoplasty with septum cartilage. In which, rhinoplasty covers the ear cartilage, also known as ear cartilage or tympanic cartilage graft.
Just like the general advantage of rhinoplasty with cartilage is the use of body tissue, so rhinoplasty with ear cartilage will not cause an immune response and reduce the risk of infection and rejection of the graft. At the same time, thanks to the removal of cartilage tissue in the body, it is highly compatible, easily combined with the rest of the nose, so the results of rhinoplasty look more natural.
The method of rhinoplasty with ear cartilage also has its own advantages. The characteristic of the parietal cartilage is that it is softer than the septal cartilage, and its flexible, tough and elastic nature means that it is easier for the doctor to shape and form the desired shape. The high flexibility and natural curvature of the ear cartilage will make the lifting and shaping of the tip look more perfect. And when the cartilage is removed, the scar is almost invisible, the incision can be well hidden.
Besides, it also has the disadvantage that it requires a longer surgical time than rhinoplasty using artificial materials. And over time, the cartilage can warp and warp. However, this depends on the skill and experience of the plastic surgeon rather than the cartilage nature.

Rhinoplasty is generally a safe procedure with minimal surgical risk. Like any surgery, complications can still occur, however, with rhinoplasty, complications are less likely. Some common postoperative complications include infection or bleeding.
During the surgery, you will not feel any pain because you will be given general anesthesia or injected with local anesthetic (nose, ear). After a successful surgery, you may feel some pain at first, however, your doctor will prescribe pain relievers to ease your discomfort.
If you are worried about the doctor taking the cartilage from your ear, don't worry, because this will not affect the appearance of the ear and will not leave any visible scars on the ear. . In fact, the ear will feel a little softer than it was before the cartilage was removed.
Thanks to the development of modern technology, ear cartilage is thoroughly applied to cosmetic rhinoplasty such as Korean cartilage-covered rhinoplasty methods to make the tip of the nose look more natural, or in rhinoplasty technology S -line/L-line to shape the nose more beautiful, more flexible. The latest technology in many beauty salons is the 4D semi-structured rhinoplasty with ear cartilage, shaping the noses with less defects and wanting a more beautiful nose shape.
