Challenges of Nasal Surgery
Rhinoplasty and septoplasty are challenging procedures to perform.
- Technically demanding
- Often without enough remaining nasal cartilage
“Rhinoplasty is...among the most frequently performed operations in the United States today (305,475 in 2004, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons). However, this procedure may also be perceived as one of the most technically demanding of all cosmetic procedures.” 2
“ …graft requirements may exceed what remaining cartilage is found in septal and auricular sites, especially in secondary rhinoplasty.” 3
In Septoplasty “…the pieces of cartilage must be reconnected meticulously to form a straight and solid plate. This difficult and time-consuming technique can be facilitated by the use of a connecting material.” 4
