The philosophy of this work is to revise an interesting way to compensate a lack of nasal volume. Autologous auricular cartilage is used to augment a hollow dorsum. In this way, we treat depressed, asymmetrical, and irregular dorsa. We have 10 years' experience with this technique, in a total of nearly 350 cases. Among these cases are traumatic, secondary, and congenital noses. Prior to using this technique, we employed nasal septum, iliac crest bone or calotte, rib, dermis, fascia, etc. But actually, the "neogibbus" provided by the upper fossette of the concha of the auricle is enough, except for cases of exceptional volume needs. The ear does not suffer any damage when it is treated appropriately, and a uni- or bilateral graft can be taken, if necessary, to create a strong gibbus in the manner of a "sarcophagus" or of "Russian dolls."
