Open Rhinoplasty (nasal cartilage implant) Treatment

An open rhinoplasty is a more obtrusive surgical methodology for changing the shape of the nose and the size of the nose, including any corrective breathing issues. In this surgery, the nose surgeon will cut open the nasal skin and the nasal ligament to uncover the fundamental internal nasal structure and the nasal bone completely.

Nasal cartilage implant is a technique that is followed in the procedure of open rhinoplasty. The septum is nothing but a wall of ligament (cartilage) and bone, that isolates the two nasal cavities within the nose. During open rhinoplasty, the specialist could remove a little piece of nasal septal ligament and use it to expand another portion of the nose and restructure it. This procedure is bound to be performed mostly in people who have sufficient tissues to gather.

This medical procedure ordinarily takes around 2 to 3 hours under general sedation. Nasal cartilage rhinoplasty utilises harvesting from an individual’s own nasal septum to completely structure the nose, right from the base till the tip. This medical procedure can be performed utilising the general nasal cartilage or it may very well be joined with a silicone implant partially. 

The specialist will utilise nasal cartilage that is freshly and newly harvested from the individual’s own nose, after which the nasal cartilage is intended to develop the structure of the nose to make a defined nose structure.


Open rhinoplasty using nasal cartilage implant is predominantly used to treat both cosmetic and medical reasons, including; 

  • Short nose syndrome 
  • Improvement of the airway
  • Trauma or injury
  • Nasal irritation brought about by ongoing allergies
  • Weak or drooping cartilage
  • Disfigurements
  • Reshaping nasal bridge
  • Reshape the nose tip
