My first operation has been done on 24/Oct/2012. open rhinoplasty.. Medpor inserted. after one week my doctor take the Splint. the look of the new nose was very good. but i read more much about Medpor and found that it's very hard to remove if getting infected or rejected. so I go back to my doctor (Decent Man) and I told him about my fears.. he said that it can be removed in any time and the risk of infection is less than 4%. I didn't agree and I told him I need to remove it.
