Numerous materials have been used in augmentation rhinoplasty. The representative materials include silastics, Gore-Tex, autologous cartilage, and homologous materials. The use of alloplastic materials in rhinoplasty is often discouraged due to possible risk of infection and extrusion. Currently, the use of Tutoplast-processed fascia lata (TPFL) in augmentation rhinoplasty is increasing in Korea because it can avoid donor site morbidity and decrease the surgical time. However, there have been no reports of infections related to rhinoplasty using TPFL in Korea. We experienced a case of infection that occurred after rhinoplasty using TPFL. We report this case along with a brief review of the literature.
Key Words: Augmentation rhinoplasty;Infection;Tutoplast processed fascia lata
