What Materials Are Used for Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, by definition, requires the addition of some material to the body to enhance the nose’s shape or appearance. The most popular materials used for rhinoplasty are:



Silicone implants are the most popular type of rhinoplasty material. They are a widely accepted medical material. Currently, there are two types of silicone implants used for rhinoplasty:

  1. Pre-made silicone: These implants come in ready-to-use shapes, but the doctor can still adjust them to match the individual’s nasal structure.
  2. Custom-made silicone: These are large sheets of silicone that the doctor can freely shape and adjust. This requires a high level of skill.

Acellular Dermal Matrix (ADM)


Acellular Dermal Matrix (ADM) is a material that resembles the patient’s own skin, but it is actually made from donor skin that has had all of the old skin cells removed. It is ideal for replacing thin or problematic nasal tissue, especially in the bridge and tip of the nose. It can also be used in conjunction with silicone at the tip of the nose to prevent the silicone from showing through.

Ear Cartilage

Ear cartilage is often used to augment the tip of the nose in patients who desire a teardrop-shaped nose. In some cases, where the patient has thin nasal skin, ear cartilage can be used to support the tip of the nose and prevent the silicone from showing through. This results in a natural-looking nose shape. Ear cartilage augmentation is ideal for patients who already have a good nasal structure and only need minor adjustments.

Rib Cartilage

Rib Cartilage is stronger than ear cartilage, so it is often used for rhinoplasty in patients who want to use their own tissue or who have already used ear cartilage. However, rib cartilage augmentation has the disadvantage of creating another wound under the breast, as the cartilage must be extracted through an incision. Additionally, the results of rhinoplasty with rib cartilage will appear more pronounced and stronger than with silicone or other materials.

For cases with many problems, doctors prefer to use rib cartilage. You can read more about open rhinoplasty with rib cartilage HERE.

Rhinoplasty Techniques You Should Know

Now that you know about the materials used in rhinoplasty, it’s time to learn about the different techniques. There are two main techniques:

Closed Rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty is a popular technique because it is a relatively simple procedure. It does not require general anesthesia and can be completed in 60-90 minutes. The incision is made inside the nose, so there is no visible scar. Closed rhinoplasty is ideal for people who have a good nasal base and want to add height for a more natural look. It is also a good option for people who are having rhinoplasty for the first time.

Open Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty, also known as open reconstruction, allows the doctor to directly adjust the nasal structure. The doctor makes an incision from the bottom of the nose up, allowing them to see the entire nasal structure and customize the nose shape to match the individual’s face. Open rhinoplasty provides natural and beautiful results. It is suitable for all types of rhinoplasty, even for people with abnormal nasal structures. However, it is a more complex procedure than closed rhinoplasty, so it takes longer and costs more. It also requires a highly experienced doctor.

Popular Nose Shapes in Asia

Due to genetic factors, Asian men and women tend to have low nasal bases and wide nostrils. Therefore, rhinoplasty is popular to make the nose more prominent, the tip more refined, and the nostrils narrower. There are 3 main popular nose shapes that men and women in Asia like to have:

Sloped Nose with Pointed Tip

This is the most popular nose shape because it gives a natural result. The bridge of the nose is sloped and smooth, and the tip is upturned. It is suitable for people with a relatively large amount of nasal tissue, as it helps to reduce the risk of silicone showing through.

Teardrop Nose

Another popular nose shape is the teardrop nose, which gives the face a sweet and feminine look. It is also said to be good feng shui. The bridge of the nose slopes down and the tip is shaped like a teardrop, making the nose look longer.

Sloped Nose with Upturned Tip

If you want to get a nose job that will make your face look more angular and foreign, you should choose a sloped nose with an upturned tip. This shape is similar to the sloped nose with an upturned tip, but the bridge of the nose is adjusted to match the eyes and forehead, and the tip is slightly upturned. The result is a face with more dimension and a more beautiful and angular look.

Do’s and Don’ts Before and After Rhinoplasty

Before Rhinoplasty

  • Consult a doctor and provide health information, such as underlying diseases, medication allergies, and regular medications.
  • Stop taking aspirin, NSAIDs, vitamin E, ginkgo biloba, and cod liver oil at least 2 weeks before rhinoplasty to reduce the risk of bleeding.
  • Avoid smoking or drinking alcohol for at least 2-4 weeks before rhinoplasty to prevent swelling and reduce the risk of infection.

After Rhinoplasty

  • Apply cold compresses for at least 24-72 hours to reduce pain and swelling. After that, apply warm compresses to reduce bruising.
  • Sleep with a high pillow or use a neck pillow to support your head. Avoid sleeping on your stomach or side to prevent blood from collecting in your nasal cavity.
  • Avoid washing your face for at least 3 days to prevent the wound from getting wet and at risk of infection. During this time, you can use a cotton swab dipped in clean water to wipe your face. If there is bleeding, it is recommended to use a cotton swab or cotton swab dipped in saline to clean it.
  • Avoid drinking alcohol and smoking for at least 3-4 weeks after rhinoplasty, as this can slow wound healing and increase the risk of infection.
  • Avoid eating spicy foods such as fermented foods, undercooked foods, and certain types of seafood. Also avoid spicy foods that can cause you to runny nose more than usual.

First Time Rhinoplasty : Where to Get It Done?

For those who are thinking about getting a rhinoplasty for the first time, but are still not sure where to get it done, we recommend that you do your research thoroughly first. This includes checking whether the clinic is legal and accredited, and whether the doctor is qualified and experienced. This will ensure that you receive the correct and appropriate advice and design for your rhinoplasty, and reduce the risk of complications that can have a negative impact on your body after the procedure.
