In Reply to: Another question posted by Paloma on November 04, 2000 at 19:54:01:

: I'm in a delemma because I have little cartlage in my septum, one ear has been used to repair the tip. All I'm left with is one ear and ribs of course. Is one ear good enough to repair a saddle nose?

Paloma,
I've had both my ears used for grafts in my nose, and have been told by several doctors that there is still enough cartilage left in one ear that can be used. I wouldn't worry about having to use rib grafting if I were you....but, of course, the doctor will have to advise you which is best for your particular outcome.
Barbara
