Strange Feeling after Gortex or Silicone Placement in Dorsum of Nose?

A nose will not typically feel "strange after placement of silicone or gortex but I prefer to use the patient's own tissue, avoiding the increased risk if infection, movement and extrusion seen with synthetic materials.

No synthetic implants

Autologous grafts (tissue from your own body), such as diced cartilage wrapped in fascia, provide the safest, most permanent results.  They have a much lower risk of infection, extrusion, or migration than synthetic implants because they become fully incorporated into your nose unlike synthetic implants, which remain as a foreign body in your nose.  DCF provides customizable, precise augmentation to give you a natural, attractive contour.
