Abstract

Revision rhinoplasties are extremely difficult to perform even for the surgeons mastering nasal surgery. In fact, they must be skilled at adapting surgical strategies to the anatomical changes induced by primary rhinoplasty.We herein describe an original technique using an auricular cartilage graft after 6 revision rhinoplasties.The aforementioned graft succeeded in improving tip support, correct external nasal valve dysfunction and alar pinch, and providing tip definition, projection, and ptosis.In our opinion, rainbow graft is a safe approach in case of severe nasal structural deficiencies, improving both the functional and esthetic results in revision rhinoplasties.
