[Objective] To summarize anatomy data for clinic application of 6th rib cartilage harvest from infra-mammary fold incision during rib cartilage transplant rhinoplasty of Chinese females. [Methods] Data are retrospectively collected and analyzed of photographs of 6th rib cartilages over measure grid plate from 60 patients of Chinese women those accept surgeries from November of 2010 to July of 2011. The mean and standard deviation of the measurement data were calculated and correlation analysis of multiple stepwise regressions was made. [Results] The mean and standard deviation of central line length and thickness of 6th rib cartilage were as follow: (7.373 ± 1.200) cm and (0.911 ± 0.093) cm. Age had a positive correlation with thickness of 6th rib cartilages with statistically significance of P < 0.05. [Conclusion] The result helps prognosis of quantities of donor rib cartilage in ear/nose plastic and reconstructive surgeries of Chinese females.
