Abstract

Many allograft materials have been used for performing augmentation rhinoplasty. But in cases involving complications such as infection, inflammation and foreign body reaction, these should be removed and replaced with an autograft material which is more suitable for revision surgery. Frequently, the use of autograft materials, including bone and cartilage, are restricted by many limitations such as unavailability, insufficiency in volume, and resorption. By using the dermofat, however, we achieved good surgical results in revision rhinoplasty from the aspect of volume and donor site morbidity. Thus, we report this case with a review of the literature.
