Nasal implants plastic surgery make use of foreign materials that are engineered items, that are set in the nose to modify the size, shape, or the entire construction of the nose. Nasal implants are normally positioned for two predominant reasons - either to upgrade the aesthetic state of the nose as an assistant to rhinoplasty procedure, or to work on the nasal airway route by making the nasal valve region stronger. 

Nasal implants usually come in different shapes and sizes for the dorsum and tip, which is the bridge of the nose. There are various treatment techniques that the doctor might take into consideration before stepping into the procedure.;

Nasal silicone implants: Silicone nasal implants are at times known as silastic implants that are made of non-porous medical grade solid silicones which are easier to use and give lesser chance of infections.  

Medpor (Porex)-implants: These are biocompatible high density polyethylene (HDPE) implants that are made up of lightweight porous substances. 

Gor-tex (e-PTFE): These are newly advanced biocompatible and less porous implants that usually allow some tissue integrations

Autologous Graft: This technique uses the body’s own ligament (cartilage) from the nasal septum region, or the ear (conchal) cartilage.

Homologous Graft: This graft technique uses the body’s own irradiated rib cartilage from a rib bank.
