Removing Scar Tissue or Capsule Left from Silicone Implant?
I'm an Asian girl who had augmentation Rhinoplasty 7 months ago. The doctor put an I-shaped silicone implant in my nose. I took the implant out 4 months ago. However, my nose has not returned to its pre-op state. I think it's due to scar tissue. I can see the scar tissue on my nose, especially around the glabella.
Overall, my nose is bigger, wider, and more distorted than pre-op, from bridge to tip. Can scar tissue left behind from silicone encapsulation be surgically removed, and is this procedure safe? Is it similar to "defatting"? What are the risks?
