A Rhinoplasty with autologous cartilages for natural outcome and movement after surgery.

In recent years, the use of autologous cartilages is increasing since people seek more natural outcomes.


Autologous cartilage can be collected and used from septum cartilage in the nose, the cartilage in both ears, and rib cartilages. 

So it is characterized by being human-friendly because it is not a synthetic implant but a tissue that constitutes one's body.


Artificial implants or newly made synthetic materials are relatively more likely to cause side effects such as capsular contractions or other inflammatory reactions. 

In addition, autologous cartilage is highly elastic and soft, making it a more natural material suitable when moving the tip of the nose.


If synthetic material such as silicon is used it will be difficult to lift the tip of the nose with your finger whereas this is possible when autologous cartilages are used. 

It allows natural, soft, and soft movements after the surgery.

Autologous cartilage rhinoplasty is suitable if you have no complaints about the height of your nose, but you are dissatisfied with the shape of your sagging nose, 

such as a wide nose or an aquiline nose, autologous cartilage rhinoplasty will make your nose tip look sharper and slimmer.


After inserting the autologous cartilage, it becomes attached to other tissues over time and can be maintained semi-permanently. 

In addition, the nose line can be completed in a balanced manner according to each individual's nose bone, length, and outline, so satisfaction after surgery is high.


For a beautiful nose line, it is also important to use natural autologous cartilage, but you should also consider improving the angle between the tip of the nose and the upper lip.

If the tip of the nose is low and the nasal angle is droopy, it is easy to appear as a protruding mouth.


So correcting the tip of the nose by inserting cartilage can balance and improve the nasal angle and make you look more beautiful, especially from the side profile.


In addition, the angle and shape of the nose tip are important. 

This is because, if the nose tip is droopy, the nose can look long and unaesthetic, and if the tip angle is too wide then the nostrils can be too noticeable from the front.


Unconditionally, the tall and high nose can feel a foreign body and its shape can be unnatural, 

so you need to carefully consider the non-pure, visual, thickness of the skin, size, and type of nose 

to make a nose line that best suits your features.


Dr. Seo Je-won, a rhinoplasty specialist board-certified plastic surgeon of DA Plastic Surgery Clinic, said, 

Even without the synthetic silicone, you can raise your nose line high enough and also seek for nose with natural movements even after the surgery. 

Moreover, for patients with nasal functional problems, surgery will be carried out in collaboration with plastic surgery and otolaryngologist.
