Summary of "Comparison of Patient Satisfaction Between Composite and Dorsum Augmentation-Only Nasal Reconstructions With Diced Cartilage Graft Wrapped in Fascia."

The comparison of patient satisfaction with the use of diced cartilage graft wrapped in fascia (DCF) graft in composite versus dorsum augmentation-only reconstructions (DAOR), technical hints and complications in our series, affecting the end-result and the patient satisfaction (PS) has been presented.Between 2013 and 2018 the DC-F graft is used in 32 rhinoplasty cases. Nine of patients have had composite reconstruction (CR). The DAOR has been needed for 23 of patients.The follow-up period has been 2 months to 3 years. The authors have obtained satisfactory results in 24 cases but some untoward progress in 8 cases. A questionnaire was prepared and asked all patients for the assessment of the satisfaction from appearance, breathing, self-esteem, and positive psychological effect.The learning curve for rhinoplasty should be calculated for, hump reduction, crooked nose, augmentation rhinoplasty, and so on. separately which is also relevant for the use of a DC-F graft. Placing the DC-F over a straight platform, choosing the accurate graft and fascia material wisely, proper tailoring of DC-F, sliding it under the skin-superficial musculoaponeurotic system properly etc. determine the quality of the end result and the degree of PS. Operating on the DAOR are relatively more comfortable compared to CRs but responses to our questionnaire denote higher degrees of satisfaction in CR cases.Utilization of the DC-F graft in secondary rhinoplasties for dorsum augmentation provides satisfactory results. The degree of PS with the DC-F reconstruction seems to have an adverse correlation with the extent of deformities that you start with.
