An implant can be removed if you would like.

Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Removal of Gore-Tex

Gore-tex, an old implant can be easily removed. It depends where it has been inserted. Often just using local anesthetic is possible.
