What are the main differences between this technique and a regular Rhinoplasty? First, a DCF Rhinoplasty uses your own cartilage (or donor cartilage) versus an implant. Secondly, the chances of infection are very little-to-none. Lastly, patients receive more natural-looking results.
Dr. Edwin Kwon has performed and perfected this one-of-a-kind procedure. In fact, he has written several papers on this type of Rhinoplasty with other highly-respected Board Certified Plastic Surgeons in The Aesthetic Surgery Journal, Facial Plastic Surgery Clinics of North America and more.
