Key PointsQuestionIs it safe and efficacious to use expanded polytetrafluoroethylene at the nasal tip and nasal dorsum for cosmetic augmentation? FindingsIn this randomized clinical trial of 76 patients, complication rates were low and there were no significant differences between the expanded polytetrafluoroethylene–only group and the expanded polytetrafluoroethylene with conchal cartilage group. MeaningUse of expanded polytetrafluoroethylene alone for augmentation of the nasal tip and nasal dorsum is safe and efficacious; use of conchal cartilage as a shield in the nasal tip is not necessary.
