Abstract

A large variety of graft materials have been used for augmentation rhinoplasty. To date there has been no graft material which can be regarded as completely satisfactory. The modern trend is to prefer autologous material to new biological material. The membranous bones of the calvarium are extremely suitable for augmenting moderate to severe saddle nose deformities. Calvarial bone grafts can be harvested easily, with minimum donor site morbidity and disfigurement. Our experience with calvarial bone grafts for augmentation rhinoplasty is presented.
