Asian Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
Asian Rhinoplasty? Duration of Silicone or Gortex as Opposed to Cartilage? (photo)
I'm a 45 year old Asian female with a typical flat nose. I've noticed in recent years that the tip of my nose has gotten rounder and my nostrils has gotten bigger and wider, causing my nose to look even flatter. After some research on this procedure I'm a little reluctant due to so many complications that can occur on Asian patients. If Silicone or Gortex was used how long would it last, meaning, what is the average life expectancy if plastic is used oppose to your own cartilage?
All Silicone, Gortex and cartilages are considered permanent materials.
