Abstract

The nasal profile and skin thickness in the Caucasian Indian vary from the Oriental Chinese or Malay noses. Reduction rhinoplasty is more common in the Caucasian Indian noses whereas augmentation rhinoplasty is more common in the Oriental Chinese or Malay noses. Graft selection remains the greatest challenge for surgeons performing rhinoplasty. However, the preferred choice as far as possible for nasal reconstruction would be autografts as compared to allografts due to their lower rate of infection, extrusion and they do not induce an immune response. We have evaluated 40 patients and compared our experience with the grafts available over a period of 46 months.
