Dear Ms. My. Thank you for trusting and sending your question to Gangwhoo Cosmetic Hospital. Lots of customers are also wondering whether they should choose cartilage or S Line rhinoplasty. The following article shall provide the information you need. Please stay tuned.
What are cartilage and S Line rhinoplasty?
Before deciding whether you should choose cartilage or S Line rhinoplasty, let’s understand these 2 methods of rhinoplasty:
Cartilage rhinoplasty is a rhinoplasty procedure originating from Korea. This is considered the leading modern and safe rhinoplasty technology nowadays.
During surgery, the doctor will dissect the cavity and insert artificial cartilage to raise the nose bridge. Next, the doctor shall use the autologous cartilage (taken from the customer’s body) to coat the nose tip.
S Line rhinoplasty
S Line Rhinoplasty is also known as the structural S Line rhinoplasty. This is a more advanced rhinoplasty technology than cartilage rhinoplasty technology. This method shall completely get rid of all the nose defects.
Technically, the S Line rhinoplasty technology involves reconstructing the nose structure using a combination of biological cartilage and autologous cartilage (usually ear cartilage). The structural S Line rhinoplasty method gives a soft, natural, and trendy S Line nose shape.
Comparing the cartilage and the S Line rhinoplasty technology
Cartilage rhinoplasty and structural S Line rhinoplasty are similar in technique. Both methods use artificial cartilage to raise the nose bridge, and autologous cartilage to enhance columella and coat the nose tip.
With this technology, both rhinoplasty methods are highly rated for safety that prevents the risk of unwanted complications such as:
|Cartilage rhinoplasty||S Line rhinoplasty|
|Defect improvement||Suitable for the quite low nose, fairly short nose tip.||Almost improve all the common nose defects.|
|Level of intervention||Reconstructing the nose tip and nose bridge.||Reconstructing the entire nose structure.|
|Suitable individual||Suitable for those who have a fairly beautiful nose shape and only need a slight improvement in the nose height.||Suitable for those who have a nose with lots of defects. Suitable for those who underwent several times of failed rhinoplasty.|
|Surgery time||About 45 minutes||About 45 – 60 minutes based on the condition|
|Cosmetic result||Higher and more natural nose shape||Soft, delicate, trendy, well-proportioned S Line nose shape|
|Result maintenance||For a long time||Permanent|
