Augmentation of nasal tip and/or dorsum forms the keystone of any Septorhinoplasty surgery. The grafts available for augmentation are numerous and varied. Choice of the graft depends upon the type of augmentation required, patient characteristics and, most importantly, the surgeon. In this article, we would like to present our experience with various augmentation grafts. In our experience, autografts are best grafts for augmentation. But in cases of revision surgeries or deficiency of autografts, allografts can be used. Our choice of allograft is Poly Diaxone Sheath or PDS.
