Open Rhinoplasty (rib 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.

Rib cartilage implant is a technique that is followed in the procedure of open rhinoplasty. Since rib cartilage is harvesting material from one's own body, it integrates very naturally into the nose. Furthermore, these extremely strong harvest materials can be moulded into exceptionally small cuts, holding its strength and sturdiness. 

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

The specialist will utilise autologous rib cartilage that is freshly and newly harvested from the individual’s own body. While harvesting a rib cartilage, there will be 2-3cm of cut right under the breast line that will become invisible in the following couple of months. Then, at that point, the rib cartilage is intended to develop the base of the nose to make a defined nose.


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

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