Paul O'Keeffe, leading Sydney plastic surgeon, is the originator of Template Rhinoplasty and the inventor of Medpor Nasal Shell, an implant made by Porex Surgical in USA.
Template Rhinoplasty is the next generation closed rhinoplasty. It is very precise and predictable and involves detailed pre-operative planning of the proposed changes to the nose.
The Medpor Nasal Shell is used for nasal reconstruction. Cartilage fragments are placed beneath it and they grow by stem cell division to till the void. The shell can then be removed if desired.
