Nasal septum cartilage nose job (Rhinoplasty surgery Korea)

6:26 PM

Let’s look at in details about the most important substance in nose job (nose surgery), the nasal septum.

There are many substances used in order to change the shape of the nose. The most common ones are the ear cartilage, nasal septum and the costal cartilage.

here are many who ask this question. “Do you use ear cartilage here or the costal cartilage?” I usually answer “nasal septum”. Then these patients make note of my response, and compare it with those from other surgeons.

This is same as asking a restaurant owner, which beef he uses. “Do you use beef from area A or area b?”

Of course the owner will answer with sincerity. He would answer that he uses beef from certain area and he would also share the reasons why such as that the customers like the meat and the taste, etc.

But then the owner might think that the area is not important but how you cook the meat is.

Much of the things happening around are the same. It is what you do on the inside, where other people cannot see you, is important. From the restaurant case, it is what you do in the kitchen that is important. What people say by what they see and feel from the outside is not as important.

It might be weird comparing the surgery with the restaurant but it is the same.

It does not matter what substance a surgeon used for the nose job or nose surgery. The important thing is the planning of the surgery, and how well the surgeon carries it out.

This is a skill from the experience of the surgeon. The surgeon has the knowledge and experience therefore; much of this experience is used for the nose surgery.

If the surgeon has much experience with the ear cartilage, then he or she would be most skillful in doing the surgery with it. Those with much experience and knowledge with the nasal septum would use the nasal septum to get the best result possible.

Let’s take a look on the nasal septum now.

If you put your finger insider the nose, there will be a pillar that separates the two nose hoes. The strong substance inside that pillar is called the nasal septum.

As you can see in the image above, the nasal septum is around the upper jawbone, and the nose bone. If you remove the cartilage then the nose will lose its shape. Therefore, you can only use so much in order to do the nose surgery.

The characteristic of the nasal septum is that it is less stiff compared to the ear cartilage and more smooth compared to the costal cartilage. Overall, it is flat, and smooth.

Ear cartilage looks more roundish (because there are more curves around the year), and the costal cartilage is thicker and stronger. Nasal septum is flat and has certain level of stiffness so it is used a lot.

As you can see in the images above, there are two types of procedures that you can do to change the shape of the nose tip. For both, you can use the nasal septum.

The biggest reason that the nasal septum is used is that you can get this cartilage under the same view or sight as the actual nose surgery(rhinoplasty). If you use the costal cartilage, then you need to cut and get the cartilage from the lower line of the breasts.

If you use the ear cartilage, then you need to cut the ear, and the recovery takes about a day or two. If you use the nasal septum, you do not need to work on other part of the body other than the nose itself, so both the patient and the surgeon can feel more comfortable.

There are many substances used for the nose surgery(rhinoplasty), but the most important one is the nasal septum. Today, if you do not use the nasal septum, this means that you do not know how to do the nose surgery.

This is all for today.
Thank you for reading.
