Is fascia needed for thick skin?

Q: My nose skin is very thick (southeast asian), is fascia still needed? What about DCF?

A: While surgeons will vary on technique, I personally prefer to use fascia in a diced cartilage fascia (DCF) technique whenever dorsal augmentation (building the height of the bridge) is needed.  I find that this allows for precise shaping and placement of the graft.
