BackgroundThis study aimed to evaluate a surgical technique used for patients requiring revision rhinoplasty to reestablish their ethnic identity.MethodsA retrospective review involved 29 patients who underwent revision rhinoplasty to reestablish their ethnic identity using residual septal cartilage and porous polyethylene implants. The follow-up period ranged from 6 month to 7 years.ResultsFor all patients undergoing revision rhinoplasty, multiple porous polyethylene implants were used to… Expand
Grafts and implants in rhinoplasty—Techniques and long-term results
TLDR
The authors enlighten the reader about the indications of various grafting techniques endorsed by world experts in the field, especially as it pertains to the harvest, preparation, and insertion of these grafts into the nose. Expand
Functional and Aesthetic Results After Augmentation Rhinoplasty
TLDR
The aim of this study is to report the experience with augmentation septorhinoplasty, emphasising the type and nature of the grafts employed and the ensuing complications, and to recommend autologous cartilage as the first option for augmentation rhinoplasty. Expand
Use of Silicone Sizers in Implantation of Porous Polyethylene Nasal Dorsal Implants in Asians
TLDR
The use of silicone sizers to facilitate implantations of high-density porous polyethylene nasal dorsal implants was safe and efficacious, and one implant was removed because of a patient's dissatisfaction with the resulting tip height. Expand
Revision Rhinoplasty of Asian Noses
TLDR
The author discusses surgical technique-related problems of revision surgery; types of problems requiring secondary surgery and methods of treatment; dorsal augmentation for Asian nose; implant materials including silicone, Medpor, and Gore-Tex; dorsalAugmentation; the length of the nose, nasion, and supratip; trimming the implant; and determining the elevation of each individual area.

Assessment of Biphasic Calcium Phosphate to Repair Nasal Septum Defects in Sheep
TLDR
A good biocompatibility of biphasic calcium phosphate and its ability to repair the nasal septum in sheep is suggested, with good correlation between immunostaining and morphologic features. Expand
Rhinoplasty: panel discussion.
Should one use an open or closed rhinoplasty approach? How appropriate is the endonasal approach in modern-day rhinoplasty? Should the tip lobule be divided or preserved? Are alloplastic implantsExpand
Auricular cartilage grafts
TLDR
Auricular cartilage is a versatile graft material that can be successfully used to treat a wide range of nasal defects without major complications. Expand
A New Technique for Conchal Cartilage Harvest
TLDR
To prevent the development of trapdoor scars or linear scar contracture, short incisions were made on the superior border of the cymba and cavum, and a newly invented ball-type elevator was used. Expand
Grafting Techniques in Nasal Tip Rhinoplasty
There are an array of graft materials available for nasal reconstruction, both from autologous and alloplastic sources. They are generally used in secondary rhinoplasty along with sutures, both forExpand

TLDR
The use of implants for structural architecture in the senior author's primary reduction-structured rhinoplasty cases shows that structural components must be placed to allow a more precise outcome. Expand
Clinical experience with the medpor porous polyethylene implant
TLDR
The Medpor porous polyethylene implant is a highly stable and somewhat flexible porous alloplast that has been shown to exhibit rapid tissue ingrowth into its pores that is an excellent alternative to existing implant materials. Expand

Clinical and Histologic Behavior of Exposed Porous High‐Density Polyethylene Implants
TLDR
Porous high‐density polyethylene is a safe and reliable material for use in aesthetic and functional reconstruction of the head and neck and possibly other porous alloplasts tolerate exposure well once host fibrovascular tissue has invaded the implant pores. Expand
