Abstract

Objectives: Correcting nasal dorsal deformities and irregularities often requires biological or alloplastic materials. In rhinoplasty, a frequent postoperative problem is a rough and rigid nasal dorsum. The purpose of this experimental study was to investigate the feasibility of using diced cartilage grafts wrapped in amniotic membrane for soft tissue augmentation.
