What is
GNG’s No-Plant Rhinoplasty?

No-Implant Rhinoplasty is

a method of heightening the nasal bridge
by using self or donated cartilage and dermis

without any artificial implants such as silicone or gore-tex.

Therefore, there will be no side effects that can be seen when using artificial implants
and it will definitely create natural looking nose.

GNG’s No-Plant Rhinoplasty Methods


  • 무보형물 코성형

    Septal Cartilage

    The septum has a proper thickness and strength and it is very suitable for creating the shape of the nose bridge/tip.

  • 무보형물 코성형

    Conchal Cartilage

    Conchal cartilage is very soft to make the shape into a natural and smooth looking appearance.

  • 무보형물 코성형

    Rib Cartilage

    Rib cartilage is firm enough to build the nose with strong bearing capability.

  • 무보형물 코성형

    Dermis near the Hip

    The dermis taken from the hip is the thickest dermis of our body. It is used to design the shape of the nose to balance the face.

Usage of Living Implant

(when complication with
autologous tissue)

  • 무보형물 코성형
  • Donated Dermis / Donated Cartilage

    When the situation cannot be solved with autologous tissue, donated dermis/cartilage can be considered. It is the most safe product approved by the FDA and it has been proven to be clinically safe when treating burn patients for many decades.

  • Ratio of Actual Surgery Patients at GNG

    The percentage of patients who underwent the rhinoplasty is about equal for implant and no-plant. In recent years, there has been a rapid growth of interest in no-plant rhinoplasty among many patients that are in need to have more natural looking nose line.

Prevention of absorption

due to finely diced cartilage
used as powder.

The percentage of revision surgery due to absorption

There were many cases of absorption when only using the dermis.
At GNG, we have many surgical experiences that accumulated in the past to be sure that using the cartilage
as a powder will lower the rate of absorption. Therefore, re-operation due to absorption happens very rarely.

At GNG Hospital we grind the cartilage finely
into a powder.

  • Experienced in Cartilage Grinding

    Grinding method is widely used internationally.
    It definitely requires more effort and time consuming so it is not much recommended and used in Korea.

    However, at GNG Hospital, we have experienced medical practitioners to give
    our patients the utmost satisfactory results.

Q&A for No-Plant Rhinoplasty

Q. Does it really not show up in CT & X-Ray?

A. They are not visible on X-Rays and CT in airports or hospitals when donated dermis/cartilage are used
since it is the same material as the actual human dermis or cartilage.

Q. Is the donated dermis/cartilage considered safe?

A. It is approved by the U.S. FDA and Korea Food & Drug Administration.
It is characterized as excellent suitability and safety.

Q. I am a foreign study abroad student and it is difficult to go to the hospital outside Korea.
Therefore, I am afraid that it will cause inflammation after the surgery.

A. Our patients who have undergone surgery at GNG did not experience inflammation after one month.
It is recommended for patients who have difficulties for doctor’s visits.

    Usage of the HEPA filter ventilation system in all operation rooms.

    What is a HEPA filter ventilated operation room?

    The air outside the operating room is filtered cleanly by the HEPA filter and circulated inside.

    Because air is circulated by providing clean air through a positive pressure system, you don’t need to worry about infection caused by air pollution thus having surgery with confidence.

    Also, there is an air-shower system that shakes off contaminated dust before entering the operating room. We strive to do our best in preventing infection through sterilization and thorough infection control of all medical devices.

    Be rest assured! GNG’s operation rooms are meticulously clean.
