Anyone done/interested in doing Donor Ribs Rhinoplasty?

Postby rhinose » Sat, 29 Jan 2011 4:07 pm

Hi guys I am interested in using this method for my Rhinoplasty.

In fact I am only interested in using Rib Cartilage the moment.

It seems like when you decide on such material an ENT is recommended.

I am not sure if it is due to the fact that the removal or the cartilage requires the expertise of the ENT or if any plastic surgeon can perfrom this?



I am reluctant to leave a scar on my body as I like to go swimming and exercise.


I intend to do mine in Taiwan but some forum here say Taiwan is still new since only since 2009 have they allowed Donor ribs to be used.

I listed some web links that support the use of Donor ribs indicating that it has no disadvantages over Self Ribs.

However, Drs do differ in opinion as some will still say Own ribs is safer and absorbs less.

I like to hear some comments on this for those who have done or are interested in this.

Lets gather some good information on this less popular method.
