Ear cartilage is an important source of graft in rhinoplasty. The majority of ear cartilage grafts are harvested from the concha of the ear. However, in some restricted cases, the tragal cartilage can be a more favorable graft source than conchal cartilage. In this report, two cases of tragal cartilage graft rhinoplasty were selected. We used the tragal cartilage for batten graft in one case, and for the shield graft in the other case. Tragal cartilage harvesting technique was fast, simple, and did not require a special dressing. The functional and aesthetic results were relatively good. There was negligible scar formation in the donor site.
