So, if it ain't broke don't fix it. Unless you are having a problem with the implant it may not be worth messing with it. If you take it out I would suggest replacing it with cartilage grafting to maintain the shape you have. Yes, it can get infected but if it is ok now why mess with it?Certainly if you do not replace it you will lose your current shape as the skin envelope contracts back down. I nor anyone else can comment on whether your nose will look like MJ.
