In this article, options for nasal implantation during rhinoplasty are discussed. The range of implant options currently available to the nasal surgeon is considered in detail. Various types of autografts, homografts, and alloplasts commonly used in the nose are introduced and described. Indications for each nasal implant type are considered, as are the advantages and limitations of each option.
