Dorsal nasal augmentation is commonly performed for various aesthetic deficiencies and/or reconstructive defects such as the saddle nose deformity. However, the optimal technique for volume augmentation has yet to be identified. The senior author (F.P.) has since developed a new modified technique using wrapped diced cartilage within an AlloDerm. This novel construct provides the plastic surgeon a smooth, convenient, pliable option with similar operative times as compared with other popular techniques. In summary, this technique has been proven to be successful in achieving attractive, safe, and acceptable outcomes in nasal dorsal configuration and overall patient satisfaction.
