Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
What Are the Complications W/ Removal of a Thin Silicone Nasal Implant 1 Month After Dorsal Reduction? (photo)
During a closed rhinoplasty reducing a dorsal hump the Dr inquired re: using a very thin silicone piece to counter "bumps on the sides". The resulting implant extends the length of the nose to an uncomfortable point. Post surgery the Dr explained he sought to counter a drooping tip. What are complications ie contraction at the tip/ alterations to the underlying cartilage as the surgeon claims there will not be any side effects. Should I seek other opinions pre-removal or have it out asap?
