Augmentation/Reconstruction Implants, Facial, Nasal

Definition : Facial implants designed for augmentation and/or reconstruction of the nose. These implants are usually inserted beneath the skin of the nose during plastic (i.e., rhinoplasty) and/or reconstructive (e.g., dorsal) surgery. Nasal augmentation/reconstruction implants are typically precontoured sections of synthetic (typically silicone) or, less frequently, biologic (i.e., autograft, allograft, xenograft) materials intended to reproduce the desired external shape of the nose; it may also be necessary to implant a bone graft. Nose implants are intended to improve the physical appearance or to correct abnormalities that are congenital or the result of illness or trauma. Hollow tubular nasal implants intended to facilitate breathing (typically used after surgical procedures) and/or to support the nasal structure are also available.
