Are there any risks associated with the use of grafts for rhinoplasty?
There are no surgical procedures that don’t have any possible risks. I use cartilage grafts in almost every rhinoplasty in Philadelphia. Typically, I use nasal septal cartilage and occasionally ear cartilage. I can’t recall any complications from these grafts, but complications are always a possibility. Very rarely, the grafts don’t take.
