What is an Engineered Rib? Is It Safe? How Long Will It Last?
A doctor gave me a choice to choose between a enginnered rib or my own rib cartilage to augment my nose. My nose is short and my skin is thick therfore cartiage from my own nose is not enough for the height and length I'm trying to acheive. I would like to know what is an enginnered rib, I'm thinking it's sombody elses rib. Secondly is it safe and does it last forever.
