I like that. I look better already!

I know what you mean, but it seemed to me that he meant it would physically cause the tip to lift. I may have understood it wrong.

Careful about the morphs. A good "idea" but that is all. They allow you and the surgeon to be "on the same page" preop, however, the results seldom resemble the morphs. Nowadays, prospective patients are becoming too dependent on morphs and such, vs. face to face interactions. Dangerous in my opinion.

Good tool as a guide. Definitely not the end all be all.

Default Tip Grafts

What are your thoughts on tip grafts?

I've had some docs say that they don't use them because they eventually move....and I've had some docs that do prefer to use tip graft to lift or define the tip.


Are tip Grafts OK? Or should they be avoided if there's an alternative option.

Are there horror stories...

Even if the doc uses crushed cartilage?
Even if the person's skin is really thick?

I was told that my skin is so thick i won't have any issues like having grafts sticking out or looking obvious...

So I've been trying to steer clear of grafts, but my doc says I would need one on my tip, as I have a weak tip. He said that if he sees that sewing the cartilage together would help with the tip definition, he will stop there. If not, he will place a cartilage graft on the tip.

What are your thoughts? Is the graft necessary? I've seen some scary grafts...
