Rhinoplasty is an art of not only achieving structural integrity of nasal form but also maintaining functional aspects of breathing. To achieve this, autograft, allograft, and synthetic materials are used as various components of nasal structure for augmentation or correction.1,2 Despite various synthetic materials giving promising results and compatibility, cartilage ...

Importance  Caudal septal extension grafts (CSEGs) can be used to alter and secure nasal projection and length. Graft position and thickness play an important role in terms of both function and aesthetics. The limitations of harvesting cartilage from additional sites necessitate development of a more efficient method ...

Importance  Intraoperative computed tomography (CT) provides surgeons with real-time feedback during maxillofacial trauma and reconstructive surgery, which can affect intraoperative decision making.

Objectives  To evaluate the time needed to perform intraoperative CT scans during maxillofacial surgery, determine any trend toward shorter total scan times as experience ...

Importance  The use of gauge earrings causes earlobe defects and, at times, significant contour distortion. Simple closure leads to inadequate results in most cases. We describe a stratified approach to assessing the earlobe deformity as well as specific reconstructive techniques tailored to each type of deformity to ...
