I’ve heard that some surgeons prefer to wrap something called fascia around the cartilage when cartilage grafts are used for rhinoplasty. Can you explain what fascia is and what this does?
Use of fascia is just one of many techniques and tools of rhinoplasty. Fascia is the covering of muscle and temporalis muscle fascia is the most commonly used followed by rib perichondrium which is the lining of rib cartilage. Alloderm is also an option.
