Choosing materials of the most appropriate form and quantity is an important factor in the success of the surgical repair of nasal dorsum defects. In our study, bone wax, a hemostatic agent, was employed as a template in the correction of nasal dorsum defects. This inexpensive, pliable material is an effective template that helps to model the three-dimensional form of a defect and thus to plan and carry out the most suitable reconstruction.
