- Nasal augmentation or correction without foreign body, only self tissue is used
Autologous rhinoplasty means using self tissue for nasal correction instead of implant
For dorsum augmentation implant is usually used but there is high risk of complication
due to foreign body. It is ideal to take self tissue from the body but it takes long
time and there is extra step for operation. Implant is commonly used for rhinoplasty
It is convenient to use implant but it is not body friendly since it is foreign body.
And there is risk of infection and implant showing through skin. Goal of rhinoplasty
in Aone is making natural nose shape, and lifetime safety. Autolgous is the best way to achieve this goal
01.Body friendly tissue without foreign body reaction
02.Sufficient amount exist in body
03.In case of implant it is impossible to change shape of nose. But if it is done with autologous it is possible to form it even after operation
04.It is safe for lifetime, once it is engrafted
Septal cartilage is used for nasal tip, and diced ear cartilage is wrapped on temporal fascia for nasal dorsum. If ear and septal cartilage is used in previous operation, or when patients have very low dorsum and tip or in case of severely short nose, rib cartilage is used
- Surgical method
There are two part of operation. Nasal tip operation and dorsum operation
Nasal tip is reinforced with septal or rib cartilage. Those cartilages also used for extending or shorten the length of nose. ( photo – rib cartilage ) ( Video footage – harvesting septal cartilage )
If projection and extention of nasal tip is required ear cartilage can be used in addition of septal and rib cartilage
01.Diced cartilage wrapped in temporal fascia is used if dorsum projection required more than 1.2mm
02.If required projection is more than 2mm, fascia is wrapped couple of layers ( photo – dorsum augmentation with temporal fascia only )
03.Only diced cartilage can be used for partial projection, or it can be wrpped in absorbing material called ‘sergicel’
Aone’s Differentiated Rhinoplasty
01.Preoperational analysis is very important. It must be done by surgeon, not consultant
02.Aesthetic and functional aspect must be considered.
03.Most important part of rhinoplasty is nasal tip and subnasal point.
Dorsum augmentation just needs to be good enough to match profile of face. Nasal tip is more important than nasal dorsum.
04.Rhinoplasty only can make harsh or strong impression when brows are saggy..
Forehead and brow lift is compulsory with saggy brow
05.Autoglous is most natural with minimal complication Aone does not use implant, only self tissue ( cartilage and fascia ) is used
06.Aone leads rhinoplasty industry by Aesthetic surgery symposium every year.
