Spreader grafts are usually used to repair a collapsed portion of the nose or to avoid the nose collapsing. In plain language, after hump removal you might need a spreader graft to avoid your nose looking too slim or to prevent vault collapse. You must ensure that your surgeon is not too aggressive with a spreader graft, as many surgeons are infamous for overgrafting (wide nose issues). These types of grafts are often taken from the scalp, septal cartilage, or ear cartilage.
