Background: Many nasal deformities are requiring correction by augmentation rhinoplasty. Autologous and alloplastic graft materials have been used for nasal dorsal reconstruction. Objectives: This study was designed to compare the clinical outcome Autogenous Versus Alloplastic Grafts (Medpore) For Augmentation Rhinoplasty. Results: Better functional and aesthetic results in patients whom were submitted for autogenous augmentation rhinoplasty. Conclusion: Our results are recommending autogenous grafts for nasal reconstruction. The autologous grafts are remaining superior to allografts for reconstruction and/or augmentation rhinoplaty.
Keywords: Autogenous - Alloplastic - Grafts -Augmentation Rhinoplasty.
