Abstract

BACKGROUND:

The authors report their experience with autologous graft rhinoplasties.

METHODS:

Data were collected retrospectively, with selection of only autologous grafts from 2,000 rhinoplasties performed at the Plastic and Reconstructive Department of the University of Rome Tor Vergata.

RESULTS:

A total of 62 patients from January 1995 to January 2005 were selected. Most of the patients were treated with the "open tip" technique, whereas 9.7% had a classic endonasal approach. Follow-up evaluation was performed with outpatient visits at 2 and 6 weeks, then at 3, 6, and 12 months. Good aesthetic results were obtained for 93.5% of the patients, and 83.7% had complete satisfaction.

CONCLUSION:

Autologuos cartilage graft rhinoplasty is an affordable technique easy to learn that widens possibilities of interventions for nasal pyramid reconstruction.
