Abstract

Background In rhinoplasty, many techniques are used to increase the permanence of the planned final shape of the nose. Cartilage grafts can be diced and applied directly to the nasal dorsum, or by wrapping with a material. We aim to show that mixing and using diced cartilage grafts with fat grafts can contribute to the viability of cartilage grafts by comparing our early postoperative and long-term results.
