Silicon Rhinoplasty infected on bridge one year post op. What should I do? (photo)
Doctor Answers 4
You may benefit from consulting a reputable rhinoplasty surgeon about your infected silastic nasal implant.
In our limited experience treating infected silastic nasal implants, antibiotics have only led to temporary relief, and removal was performed. Prompt removal would be the quickest means of resolving your infection.
Hope this helps, and I wish you well.
