Advantages and disadvantages of surgiform cartilage rhinoplasty

Surgiform cartilage rhinoplasty helps limit the slippage that causes the tip of the nose to appear or perforation, but is only suitable for those who have a complete artificial cartilage rhinoplasty.

Doctor Chiem Quoc Thai, Viet My Cosmetic Hospital, said that recently, many patients are interested in surgiform rhinoplasty. This is not a new surgical method.

Surgiform cartilage was first invented in 1969 by Mr. Willbert Gore, so it was named Gore-tex and it is made of Expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (e-PTFE). In 1989, surgiform cartilage was applied to rhinoplasty surgery around the world and was called Gore-tex cartilage rhinoplasty. Currently, the trade name of Gore-tex cartilage is often called Surgiform cartilage.

In the past, when there was no surgiform cartilage, cosmetic surgeons often used silicone material to lift the nose. However, the disadvantage of silicone waves is that if placed for a long time, the cartilage will easily slip and expose or puncture the tip of the nose. Therefore, Surgiform was born to overcome the above disadvantages. Surgiform nose lift cartilage helps tissues stick to the small holes of the cartilage, so it helps fix the surgiform cartilage in one place, helping to limit slippage that causes the tip of the nose to appear or perforation of the tip of the nose.

However, according to doctor Thai, surgiform cartilage has disadvantages, especially the compatibility rate with the body is lower than silicon waves, so the infection rate of surgiform cartilage (gore-tex) is higher. In the last 5 years, about 10% of surgiform rhinoplasty cases required cartilage removal. In contrast, silicon cartilage has a less than 1% rate of incompatibility and infection that must be removed. Rhinoplasty with surgiform cartilage will shrink and decrease by 20% within 5 years.

When the surgiform cartilage does not adapt and becomes infected and must be removed, it is difficult for the doctor to do so because it has adhered to the structural skin tissue of the nose.

Currently, there are two popular rhinoplasty methods: total artificial cartilage rhinoplasty and structural rhinoplasty.

Complete artificial cartilage rhinoplasty means the entire bridge of the nose and the tip of the nose are made of artificial cartilage (silicon or surgiform). Therefore, if the patient chooses to beautify with this method, they should use surgiform cartilage to limit the rate of complications of wave slippage causing nose tip exposure or nose tip perforation caused by silicon waves, according to Dr. Thai's advice. However, patients must also accept the risks of surgiform cartilage such as: incompatibility causing infection, and the rate of surgiform cartilage atrophy.

If structural rhinoplasty is performed, 1/3 of the tip of the nose has been shaped by the doctor using ear cartilage, septal cartilage, and rib cartilage, thus completely limiting the disadvantage of the wave slipping, causing the nose tip to be exposed or nose tip to be perforated. silicon. Thanks to that, patients will no longer fear complications of silicon wave loss. In addition, using silicone cartilage limits the rate of incompatibility and infection of surgiform cartilage as well as the rate of atrophy and shrinkage of surgiform cartilage.
