Abstract

What rhinoplasty surgeon has not been frustrated by unmet expectations from unreliable graft materials? The quest for an ideal graft continues. Septal cartilage is not always adequate in amount or substance. Ear cartilage may cause unsightly irregularities over time. Cranial bone or rib harvest sites add to the complexity of the procedure and can be intimidating for many operators. This article describes the authors' successful experience with AlloDerm onlay grafts for the correction of nasal contour deformities in 58 primary and secondary rhinoplasty cases by means of the open and endonasal approaches. Forty-two patients received an open-approach procedure; the remaining 16 received grafting through an endonasal or closed approach. Thirty-seven of the patients were secondary rhinoplasty patients, and some underwent multiple nasal corrections. The indications, intraoperative surgical technique of graft placement, and representative results will be discussed. Long-term follow-up showed good results, though partial graft resorption occurred in some patients. Overall, this experience with AlloDerm for nasal augmentation was encouraging.
