L-shaped Vs I-shaped Nose Implants (photo)
Hi, I got an L-shape implant inserted in my nose about 3 months ago. However, I am a bit unhappy with the results because my tip is much pointier.
Before the implant, the tip of my nose was rounder and now it is just completely pointy, which makes my nose look extremely fake. At the tip of my nose, it seems to be a little red and when I smile, I believe I could see the implant and my tip sags.
My question is: would it be better for me to remove this implant and use the I-shape implant? I am satisfied with my original round tip but I just wanted my nose bridge higher. Also, I never really got a clear explanation of the L-shape implant vs. the I-shape implant. Could you please explain? Thank you doctors.
