• Enbucrilate (Histoacryl) as a cartilage adhesive in augmentation rhinoplasty was used in 39 cases. The unique properties of this tissue adhesive enhances the ability to augment the nose during cosmetic and reconstructive rhinoplasty. Enbucrilate interacts superbly well with local tissues, causing no systemic or local untoward effects. Its main attribute stems from its ability to bond cartilage instantaneously and with great reliability, which allows for intricate fabrication of cartilage implant components. Five subcategories of dorsal, tip, and columella augmentation are presented with their technical details outlined. The aesthetic and functional results in 39 cases were deemed excellent, safe, and effective.
