Possible medpor nasal implant infection

If your drainage is not improved with oral and topical antibiotics, you may want to visit your plastic surgeon to determine whether or not your nasal implant requires removal. Best wishes.

Medpore implant

Drainage is indicative of infection. It may not respond to local therapy or antibiotics for that matter. It may require removal. Close observation by your surgeon is recommended. Donald R. Nunn MD Atlanta Plastic Surgeon.

Hi,

Yes it sound like you may have a infection in the Medpor. If you do, then it should be removed. This is unlikely to get better with just antibiotic therapy.

Best,

Dr.S.
