DCF Rhinoplasty

DCF Rhinoplasty

Diced cartilage with deep temporalis fascia (DC-F) graft has become a popular technique for those seeking a more natural rhinoplasty look.

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.

Your Options

With a DCF Rhinoplasty, patients can choose between using their own rib or a donor rib. While both options are equally popular, they both have minor differences delivering the same natural results.

OPTION 1: YOUR RIB

-

Natural-looking results
Minor chest scar
Patient may experience additional chest pain

OPTION 2: DONOR RIB

-
Uses a donor rib
