Nasal Implant Removal After Asian Rhinoplasty?
I underwent Asian rhinoplasty 5 months ago. During the surgery, my surgeon inserted a silicone implant on the bridge of my nose and used ear cartilage to refine my tip. However, this week, I noticed that there was a bump on the tip of my nose. At first, I thought it was a bug bite or a pimple, but it felt very different. I went in to see my surgeon about this, and he said that my implant is too large and is pushing down on the tip. Thus, a bump has been created. He suggests I can either remove the implant altogether or replace it with a smaller implant. When I decided to get rhinoplasty, I was most concerned about my nostril size and the tip of my nose. I did not have a desire to work on the bridge. My doctor asked me last minute if I wanted to do it, and I said I trust his expertise. Now, I really don't want the implant anymore (it is also a bit crooked), but I'm scared that since it has been 5 months since my surgery, my skin will have stretched?? Will I look odd (with sagging skin on the bridge of my nose) if I take out the implant completely (without replacing it with a smaller one)? I was actually fine with my own bridge before. My main concern is how I will look afterwards, especially after stretching out the skin with an implant and taking it out at this point. Please advise!! Thank you very much!
