The better way to saying Korean rhinoplasty should be called "structural reorganization of rhinoplasty", also known as "two-stage rhinoplasty", that is, to do the nose surgery separation and re-combination according to the tissue structure, in order to achieve the purpose of substantial transformation the shape of nose.
Traditional rhinoplasty only adds the nasal mold into the body, do not change the nose tissue structure and the change is small. It is suitable for the operation patient in good condition.
There is also a significant distinction between the two surgical techniques level
|Korean rhinoplasty||Traditional rhinoplasty|
|High technical level||Low technical level|
|Long operation time||Short operation time|
|High cost||Low cost|
|Long recovery period||Short recovery period|
|Change big||Change small|
|High stability||Poor stability|
"Two-stage rhinoplasty" in accordance with the nasal tissue structure, divided into bridge of the nose and nose two blocks, respectively, with different surgical methods to transform, in line with human structure, therefore, long-term stability. The bridge of the nose is composed of nasal bone, belong to a hard structure. Nose is composed of nasal cartilage, belong to a soft structure. The most important spirit of this operation is that different structures create by different materials respectively.
The nose part belongs to a hard structure, which is suitable for selection of artificial model. Model appearance appears I-shaped, so, "two-stage rhinoplasty" also known as "type I rhinoplasty." The current model used in this clinic is the Cameron model. It is a silicone core, the outer coating Gore-Tex film, belonging to the composite material model. Nose belongs to soft nature, so choose autologous cartilage to meet the nose soft features. Practices include strengthening the supportive force and modifying the nasal cartilage in two parts. Autologous cartilage is first used to strengthen the support force, not directly added to the original nasal cartilage. Autologous cartilage is used at the end of the nasal septal cartilage, as an extension to strengthen the original nasal cartilage support force, nose shape is still present by the original nasal cartilage, to achieve the natural and stable high effect. This is the closest approach, but some people nasal septum is too low, or nasal cartilage is too soft, after the end of the nasal septum is extended, not high enough, put the remaining autologous cartilage on the nasal cartilage to achieve the high purpose. In this case, the nose shape is not the original nasal cartilage appearance, shape is very dependent on physician technology and sense of beauty, so the nose good-looking or not, is the physician decision, not the material decision, the material can only determine the touch and long-term stability.

In some cases, the original nasal cartilage is too large, too round, poor lines, must modify the nasal cartilage, in order to make the nose meticulous. Structural change is the most important spirit of Korean rhinoplasty, the traditional rhinoplasty ignores these, and so have the difference.
In addition, bridge of the nose and nose must match the facial features, face shape, skin and surgery personal ideas, in order to achieve a suitable angle and lines, not simply only increase or shrink so simple. This practice, the doctor must work hard to build the nose, in line with the nose softness, but also has the effect of support, better long-term stability. But the use of artificial models of the bridge of nose, cannot completely rule out the possibility of rejection or infection, is the only uncertainty risk sources in this operation. If the infection occurs, you must remove the model, although the bridge of the nose lost support, the nose part is still retained, the appearance of the difference is not too large, and the impact is less obvious.
"Traditional rhinoplasty", also known as "L-type rhinoplasty", the use of L-shaped model, create the bridge of nose and nose in one, no structural distinction. This approach, bridge of the nose and nose support all rely on the model, the physician without too much effort, how high wanted to be, how high as it has. But does not match the cartilage structure, the nose is easy to be thin by the brace of the model, in long-term has the risk of perforation, or can see the nasal mold. Some physicians will put cartilage at the tip of the L model, strengthen the resistance to stress, reduce the risk of perforation, but there are still easy to see the appearance of distress. This approach also uses artificial models, or is the risk of rejection or infection uncertainty. In case of infection, the model removed, the entire nose lost support, the large change of appearance, the impact is more obvious.
