Purpose of the study: Dorsum aesthetic augmentation can be divided according to their objective, total and partial increase or camouflage. The objective of this original article is to define the valid techniques in each indication through a cohort study, clinical cases, and current data from the literature. Patient and method: lt is a monocentric mono operator retrospective study from 2005 to 2010 included. On 171 rhinoplasties, 57 were augmentation rhinoplasties of which 40 were of interest to the dorsum. Excluded patients were bone grafts, lost and one patient operated on a active Wegener desease. Thus 26 rhinoplasties were analyzed by an independent observer. Results: All grafts confused there were 11.5% of resorption which corresponds to the data from the literature, 17% of resorption in the camouflage indications and 7% in augmentation, as well as a higher resorption for crushed cartilage (33%) rate. There was more mobility in augmentation (28%) than in the camouflage (8%) and greater visibility of the banks of the graft in augmentation (35%) compared to the camouflage (8%). Conclusion: In the mild to severe saddle nose, the DCF is greater than cartilage monobloc or crushed in terms of stability and visibility, its indications could be expanded to harmonisation. Camouflage crushed cartilage is not sustainable and the temporal aponeurosis could it be preferred. Resorbable fillers can offer an alternative to surgery or improve its results.
