The use of cartilaginous graft is very common in septorhinoplasty. Objectives: This article analyses the ways of harvesting and implantation of the different type of cartilage: septal, auricular, tragal, alar and costal. It compares their advantages and disadvantages. The applications of cartilaginous grafts in primary and secondary septorhinoplasty are studied and illustrated by some clinical cases. Conclusion: the cartilage is the most reliable means of reconstruction that can be used in septorhinoplasty and it is, by far, the most used by the majority of authors. We don’t use synthetic biomaterial in nasal surgery.
