A method of correcting depressions of the cartilaginous dorsum of the nose utilizes the bone from the nasal septum. Septal bone appears to have many advantages such as availability in the same operative field, and ease of procurement, shaping, and insertion. Moreover, there is no need to allow for shrinkage. This type of bone graft seems to provide a simple, safe, and lasting correction of the depression.
