The Treatment of Alar Base Depression in Rhinoplasty with Diced Autologous Cartilage or Mass Cartilage: A Systematic Review
ConclusionsThe results demonstrate that both diced autologous cartilage and mass cartilage techniques exhibit favorable outcomes in correcting alar base depression. Diced autologous cartilage offers better malleability, lighter border contours, and a more natural appearance. On the other hand, diced autologous cartilage seems to offer superior long-term effects, while mass cartilage presents certain surgical procedural advantages. Also, compared to diced cartilage, mass cartilage may have a lower rate of long-term resorption and a lower risk of displacement. This review emphasizes the need for personalized treatment select...
