Silicone for Improving Rhinoplasty Results?
I had a Rhinoplasty about 8 years ago and loved the results, as well as the physician who performed it.
About two years ago I fell on my nose, and now have a small bump that is only noticeable from the right side of my profile. My operating physician does not want to perform another surgery, and has injected a small amount of Silicone 1000 instead, which he assures me is safe, despite all that I have read. He claims it is medical grade and that he has used it for over thirty years.
He wants to inject more, in that I have not yet achieved my desired result. Other doctors have told me that silicone is risky, but all other fillers are only temporary and are quite expensive. Should I continue with the silicone treatments, get another Rhinoplasty, or opt for other long-lasting fillers?
