“What Is Simple Rhinoplasty?”
Simple Rhinoplasty uses a septal cartilage for the structure, an ear cartilage for the nose tip, and a silicone implant for the bridge.The silicone implant may or may not be used for the rhinoplasty depending on the patient’s condition and preference. The dermis and fascia may be used if necessary. This surgery is recommended for the people who wish to retain the original nose angle but who wish to enhance the height of the nose.
Most patients know this as an “ear cartilage for nasal tip, septal cartilage for structure, silicone for the nasal bridge.” Simple Rhinoplasty is a simple nose surgery for people who want to keep the original overall nose angle but who wish to improve their aesthetic nose line.

How Is the Ear Cartilage Used for the Simple Rhinoplasty?
The ear cartilage has been used for nose surgery since long ago, mainly to cover the silicone at the nose tip. Ear cartilage is harvested from the ears. Due to its small amount and curvy shape, it is mostly used for the nose tip. It is important not to use up all the ear cartilage for the primary rhinoplasty because an ear cartilage is required when performing a revision or constructive nose surgery. The ear cartilage is now used to create a nose tip or when there is not enough septal cartilage, taking the advantage of its anatomical figure. It is used for crooked nose and for augmenting the overall nose, covered by fascia. As the ear cartilage is curved, it is not suitable for the strut to support the nasal tip and used mainly for graft in the nasal tip to strengthen the tip.
