The nose is an important aesthetic projection affecting the profile of the face. In general, east and South East Asians have noses characterized by a wide flat dorsum, a bulbous thick nasal tip, thick subcutaneous tissues with alar flare and a short, retracted columella. Such anatomical characteristics have resulted in augmentation rhinoplasty to be the most popular procedure for Far East Asian noses. Various materials have been used for augmenting the nasal dorsum from the past. But several kinds of problems still exist after these augmentations and there are no desirable materials until now. A case of augmentation rhinoplasty with keloid tissue for the first time in Korea is being reported.
