What is rhinoplasty with autologous cartilage?

Rhinoplasty with autologous cartilage is a cosmetic surgery technique that uses cartilage taken from the customer’s own body. However, depending on each customer’s desire, we can use 100% of autologous cartilage or use both autologous and artificial cartilage for the rhinoplasty procedure

Rhinoplasty with autologous cartilage is a technique of correcting the nose tip and nose bridge with cartilage taken from the body. This method will be carried out by applying the S Line rhinoplasty technique. During the surgery, the doctor will coat the nose tip with ear cartilage and raise the nose bridge with rib cartilage.

Depending on the use of autologous cartilages in the procedure, the method of rhinoplasty with autologous cartilage is divided into 2 types, including:

Rhinoplasty with autologous cartilage (100% of autologous cartilage)

Rhinoplasty with 100% autologous cartilage is a method of using autologous cartilage to form a perfect nose shape from raising the nose bridge and shaping the nose tip. Typically, we have rib cartilage rhinoplasty.

Rhinoplasty with autologous cartilage (both artificial and autologous cartilage)

Rhinoplasty with autologous cartilage and artificial cartilage is the more commonly applied technique. This technique involves using artificial cartilage to raise the nose bridge and autologous cartilage to shape and cover the nose tip.

This rhinoplasty method can be applied to all cases to correct all nose defects. Therefore, this technique is preferred by experts.

Autologous cartilage types used in rhinoplasty

In rhinoplasty surgery, the doctor will use different types of autologous cartilage to correct the shape of the nose. Usually, there are types of cartilage that will be selected such as:

  • Septum Cartilage: This type of cartilage exists in the center of the nose. Because it is a part of the nose, the septum cartilage is highly compatible with the body. This cartilage type is soft and easy to shape.
  • Rib cartilage: This cartilage type can be used to raise the nose bridge in cases of re-surgery, for people who do not have enough septum cartilage. Rib cartilage is hard, used to support the nose bridge safely.
  • Ear cartilage: This is a quite common cartilage type used in rhinoplasty. This type of cartilage is soft and used to cover the nose tip and prevent bad complications.
  • Temporalis cartilage: Compared with the 3 types of cartilage mentioned above, this method is less common. However, its effectiveness is worth mentioning. The fascia of the temporalis muscle is a thin layer of white cells with tough properties that surrounds the subcutaneous muscle layer of the temporal region.

Each autologous cartilage type will have its own advantages. Therefore, the doctor will need to understand to apply the right method, ensuring a new long-lasting nose shape.

Pros and cons of rhinoplasty with autologous cartilage

Although rhinoplasty with autologous is effective, it’s not perfect. This method has its own pros and cons like any other rhinoplasty technique.


  • By using autologous cartilage from the customer’s own body, the cartilage has almost absolute compatibility with the body.
  • A solution to prevent the risk of complications such as cartilage allergy, cartilage rejection, redness in the nose tip, dropped nose bridge… from traditional silicone rhinoplasty technique.
  • Suitable for all customers and correct all defects, it can be applied to correct damaged noses after failed surgery, accident, or birth defects.
  • Give the perfect, natural, and well-proportioned nose shape with the overall face.
  • Long-lasting new nose shape.
