    • Alloderm

      Alloderm is one of the most commonly used autologous tissues these days. Here’s how alloderm is made. It is a human tissue taken from the cadaver compliant with the regulation of the American Association of Tissue Banks, with only the true skin left after the outermost layer of the skin is peeled off; it is then quickly freeze-dried, which finally becomes alloderm. When alloderm is implanted in the body, fibrous tissues surround it, becoming part of the tissues in 6 months. As a result, it looks very natural. In addition, since it is hardly absorbed into the body, its shape can be maintained for a long time after surgery.

    • Nasal septal cartilage

      Nasal septal cartilage is a thin cartilaginous plate that divides the right side of the nose from the left. Stiff and flat, it is mostly used to erect the nasal dorsum or extend the nasal length or raise the nasal tip.

    • Otic cartilage

      Since otic cartilage is soft and elastic, it is a good material for raising the nose tip or making a natural nose shape.

    • Silicon

      Silicon is the most widely using material for rhinoplasty. It is hardly changed in the body, with little reaction to foreign body. It is also easy to be formed into the desired shape.

    • Goretex

      Goretex is a safe material used for blood vessel surgery. It has little reaction to foreign body, and it is well attached to surrounding tissues after insertion. However, it tends to shrink over time.
