I recently (3 mo ago) had revision rhinoplasty and am still having discomfort internally along with the left wall collapsing slightly. I was told that dermamatrix was used through out my process and am now a bit nervous that my body is not accepting this material.
What is Dermamatrix? Have You Heard of It Being Used in Rhinoplasty Successfully?

It is unlikely that your discomfort and collapse are the result of the dermal graft - you should discuss your concerns with your surgeon although some discomfort for months after rhinoplasty is not uncommon

Dermamatrix is an acellular dermal matirx like alloderm that perhaps was used to fil a depressionor irregular area?
