Abstract

Even after a well-executed rhinoplasty, small dorsal irregularities are not uncommon. Many materials have been used for camouflage, including autologous, homologous, and alloplastic materials. We used an equine pericardium membrane in 33 postrhinoplasty patients to prevent or correct nasal dorsal irregularities. The membrane promotes a local fibrous reaction, which leaves a uniform connective layer. In our hands, equine pericardium membrane seems to be a useful material for rhinoplasty refinements.
