Abstract

Nasal augmentation required following a trauma or a rhinoplasty operation poses a challenging problem to many plastic surgeons. Currently, allografts and autologous tissues are used for nasal augmentation; however, an ideal technique has not yet been described. Although preferred for augmentation of different parts of the body, pure dermal graft use has not been described for nasal augmentation. The authors performed nasal augmentation using a dermal graft in 90 patients in their hospital between 1994 and 2000, and they followed up the patients for 6 months to 8 years. In this article, the early and late results of dermal grafts for nasal augmentation are presented, and their advantages and disadvantages are discussed with a review of the literature. It was concluded that the easily obtained dermal graft could be an appropriate alternative in nasal augmentation, though it has not been used widely for this purpose.
