Some clinics in Taiwan they offer the "korean technique nose job" which is rhinoplast​y performed with using septal cartilage + silicone/goretex.
I wrote in to a Clinic, and they quoted me NT$60,000 to NT$70,000 (depends silicone or goretex and include alarplasty). Is it expensive?

- silicone
most commonly used by plastic docs and cosmetic docs. easy to put in. close rhino techniques usually use. very short surgery time (pro-surgeon). can be done under sedation instead of general anesthesia. soft. will not warp. but is foreign body. more susceptible to infection than cartilllage. time cost to surgeon is alot lower.


- goretex
similar to silicone but alot harder. normally use for bridge etc but not for tip. often used in combination of ear or septal carti.

- rib graft
safest, but may not produce the most pleasing aesthetic result because rib thickness is limited and doctors cannot pile one on top of another. rib may curve in 3-5 years. longer surgery time and have to be under general anesthesia, which most "one man show" clinics like that in hatyai would never have the capacity to do.

- dermal graft
not known to be used in aesthetic rhinoplasty at all unless u have some accident and need total reconstruction including the skin outside.
