For some instances of reconstructive rhinoplasty, Dr. Chugay uses cartilage grafts. Dr. Chugay believes that use of cartilage grafts should be limited to only certain instances in reconstructive rhinoplasty. Cartilage grafts are pieces of patient’s natural cartilage material (from nose or ear), which are placed in the patient’s nose. Once the cartilage graft is fully healed and assimilated, the results are excellent. However, in many cases of nose sculpting surgery, cartilage grafts have a tendency to move, absorb or extrude. Use of Gore-Tex is not only viable, but a superior alternative to cartilage grafts in most cases.
Gore-Tex is a very new effective implant material. It has undergone extensive testing. It is inert and safe for patients use and has been approved by the FDA for surgical use..
