Why Silicone Instead of Rib Cartilage for a Revision Rhinoplasty?
Had a revision rhinoplasty and he said he could not use ear cartilage because it wasn't strong enough so he went with some silicone. Why did he choose silicone verses rib cartilage? Any negative effects with the silicone I should be concerned about? Why is he so opposed to rib cartilage? I had a piggish, bulbous nose and he needed to project my nose. He also stated that if I were to massage my nose a certain way I could bring down my nostrils a bit because my nose is still soft??? True or not?
