This section of the forum is dedicated to discussions on rhinoplasty (cosmetic, reconstructive, and functional) nose surgery, also known as a “nose job”. Ethnic rhinoplasty topics can be addressed either here or in the Ethnic Cosmetic Surgery Forum.
no. i have answered this before:
1. too stiff for the nasal bridge. it is rock hard and does not bend.
2. it can warp over time.
3. too big for most noses. i only want about 1 to 3 mm elevated in most
4. donor morbidity, i.e., having to harvest it and donor scar, etc.
5. very difficult to remove unless you reopen the entire nose.
