Rhinoplasty has undergone important changes. With the advent of the open structure approach, requirements for structural grafting and direct manipulation of the cartilaginous skeleton through suture techniques have increased substantially. The present review analyzes the current literature on frequently referenced structural grafts and suture techniques. Individual techniques are described and their utility is discussed in light of available studies and data.
