Special Issue Introduction

Recently, there has been a steady increase in costal cartilage usage in rhinoplasty. For a long time, many have been critical of its use for its potential associated complications. However, criticisms aside, costal cartilage makes for an excellent source of graft due to its extreme durability, versatility, and functionality.
In this special issue, world-renowned experts discuss almost every aspect of costal cartilage usage in rhinoplasty, from harvesting and carving to clinical applications and management of complications. As veterans in the field of rhinoplasty, the authors share in great detail invaluable knowledge that can only be attained through extensive clinical exposure and utmost effort towards innovation and mastery of their craft.
I am confident that this special issue will provide meaningful insight into the usage of costal cartilage in rhinoplasty. Furthermore, it is my very hope that readers will be able to integrate these cutting-edge knowledge into their practice.
