What is Open Rhinoplasty?

Before we discuss open rib cartilage rhinoplasty, it is important to understand what open rhinoplasty is. Open rhinoplasty is a type of nose augmentation or rhinoplasty that focuses on modifying the nasal structure. This includes procedures such as suturing cartilage, extending the septal cartilage, correcting a deviated septum, or correcting a deformed, large, or humped nasal tip. This technique can be used to correct almost any nasal problem.
In open rhinoplasty, the doctor makes an incision in the front of the columella to allow for a clear view of the structure for internal adjustments. The two main types of cartilage commonly used to modify and correct the nasal structure are:

  • Ear Cartilage
  • Rib Cartilage

This article will focus on the use of rib cartilage.

Open Rhinoplasty with Rib Cartilage

กระดูกซี่โครง, ปลายไร้ซิลิโคน, เสริมจมูก

Open rhinoplasty with rib cartilage is a technique for reshaping the nose using cartilage from the rib. The doctor makes an incision in the crease under the breast to remove a piece of cartilage. This step requires a great deal of skill and experience, as each rib bone has a different strength. Choosing the wrong rib bone, such as one with too little or too much calcium, can cause the rib bone to bend, resulting in an unnatural nose shape or, in the worst case, a collapsed nasal structure. The doctor will then shape and size the rib cartilage to match the existing nasal structure to create a smooth, natural-looking nose.

The rib cartilage used for rhinoplasty can be divided into three types: the patient’s own rib cartilage, donated rib cartilage, and synthetic rib cartilage. The choice depends on the patient’s needs. The incision will be about 2 centimeters long.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Rib Cartilage Rhinoplasty?

Open rhinoplasty with rib cartilage is a technique that is accepted by cosmetic doctors worldwide as a highly effective and safe technique. It can solve almost all nose problems without causing side effects. Those who are suitable for open rhinoplasty with rib cartilage are as follows:

People with small, short, or flat noses

This type of nose is common in Asians, such as Thais, Japanese, and Koreans. This technique is therefore suitable for people who want to adjust their existing nose shape to make it look longer and more pointed. The tip of the nose can be made to look more pointed and beautiful. If only silicone is used for augmentation, it can cause problems such as a perforated nose, floating silicone, and a pinched nose.

People with thin nasal tissue

People with thin nasal tissue in both the bridge and tip of the nose are not suitable for silicone augmentation. This is because silicone can cause the nose to become thin and transparent, pinched, crooked, and eventually perforated.

Open rib cartilage rhinoplasty is the only option for people with thin nasal tissue. This is because rib cartilage is a stronger and more durable material than silicone. It can be used to create a more natural-looking nose that is less likely to experience complications.

People with a collapsed nose

People with a collapsed nose have a number of problems that need to be corrected. These problems include:

  • A crooked nose: This can be caused by a deviated septum or a damaged nasal bone.
  • A bent nose: This can be caused by a deviated septum or a damaged nasal bone.
  • Damaged cartilage: This can be caused by trauma or infection.
  • A collapsed septal cartilage: This can be caused by a deviated septum or a damaged nasal bone.

Open rib cartilage rhinoplasty is the best option for people with a collapsed nose. This is because it allows the doctor to access the entire nasal structure and make the necessary corrections.

People who have had rhinoplasty multiple times but are still not satisfied with the results

Rhinoplasty is a complex surgery, and it is not uncommon for patients to be unhappy with the results of their first procedure. In some cases, patients may have had multiple rhinoplasties but still not achieved the desired outcome.

Open rib cartilage rhinoplasty may be an option for patients who have had previous rhinoplasty and are not satisfied with the results. This is because open rhinoplasty allows the doctor to access the entire nasal structure and make the necessary corrections. Rib cartilage can be used to create a more natural-looking nose that is less likely to experience complications.

People with a perforated nasal tip

A perforated nasal tip is a hole in the tip of the nose. It can be caused by a number of factors, the symptoms are

  • A thin and transparent nasal tip: A sign that the nasal tip implant is starting to break through.
  • Pain: The area around the nose may be painful.
  • Redness: The area around the nose may be red.
  • Swelling: The area around the nose may be swollen.

People with a large nose hump

A hump is a bump on the bridge of the nose. It is caused by an overgrowth of bone and cartilage. Rhinoplasty can be used to reduce the size of a hump. The doctor will make an incision in the columella, the strip of tissue that separates the nostrils. The doctor will then remove the excess bone and cartilage. The incision will be closed with stitches.

In some cases, the doctor may use rib cartilage to augment the nose. This is done to create a more natural-looking nose. The rib cartilage is taken from the patient’s rib and is then grafted to the nose.

People with a crooked nose

A crooked nose, tilted silicone, and a crooked midline can be caused by several factors, such as accidents, rhinoplasty surgery by an unskilled doctor, or congenital abnormalities. This can result in the nose appearing crooked, tilted, or bent.

People who have had filler or liquid injections in their nose

This technique is suitable for cases where the patient has previously had filler or liquid injections in their nose, which has led to inflammation, redness of the entire nose, and the gradual spread of the liquid silicone, resulting in a deformed nose that is not as shapely as before. The technique involves removing the liquid filler and correcting the internal structure of the nose to restore its beauty.

  1. Expert assessment of the nasal structure: The experienced doctor will thoroughly assess the nasal structure, including the length, height, and width of the nose, as well as any specific problems that need to be addressed, such as a crooked nose, deviated septum, or previous rhinoplasty complications (e.g., a perforated nasal tip or thin nasal tip skin). This information will be used to develop a customized rhinoplasty plan.
  2. Anesthesia: Before the surgery begins, an anesthesiologist will administer general anesthesia and monitor the patient throughout the entire procedure, providing 1:1 care.
  3. Harvesting rib cartilage: The doctor will make a 2 cm incision in the inframammary fold (under the breast) to access the rib cartilage. The best piece of cartilage will be harvested, and the incision will be closed using a special suturing technique that strengthens the wound and promotes faster healing.

  1. Cartilage preparation: The harvested rib cartilage will be trimmed and shaped to match the patient’s existing nasal structure. It can be used to augment both the bridge and tip of the nose, as planned beforehand.
  2. Open rhinoplasty: The doctor will perform an open rhinoplasty, which involves making an incision in the columella (the tissue between the nostrils) to expose the entire nasal structure. Various techniques will then be used to adjust the nasal structure as needed, such as:
    • Alarplasty: Reducing the width of the nose.
    • Hump reduction: Reducing the size of a prominent hump on the bridge of the nose.
    • Septoplasty: Correcting a deviated septum.
    • Removal of scar tissue and fluids: Cleaning the nasal structure to prepare for the augmentation.

    The patient’s own rib cartilage will then be used to reshape the nasal structure. This may involve using rib cartilage for 100% of the rhinoplasty, or a combination of rib cartilage for the tip and silicone for the bridge, depending on the individual case.

  3. Wound closure: After the nasal structure has been reshaped, the doctor will close the incisions with sutures.

The rib cartilage rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty surgery usually takes about 2-3 hours to complete, depending on the complexity of the individual case. The doctor will schedule a follow-up appointment to remove the stitches 7 days after the surgery. The total recovery time is approximately 3-4 weeks.

  • Comprehensive solutions: Rib cartilage rhinoplasty can address a wide range of nasal problems, from complex cases requiring extensive correction to cases involving multiple previous rhinoplasties or post-traumatic deformities. It can effectively solve almost all types of nasal problems.
