It sounds A little bit like you are looking for information about a piriform implant. This is this and that fits over the entrance of the nose and is used in a lot of rhinoplasty's in particular Asian rhinoplasty. It essentially Lifts the midface and base of the nose forward and up. It can get infected but both that and migration is rare. Silicon implants are the easiest to remove. You can also use MedPore and bone grafts from the hip, tibia or skull. Of course that's getting a little extreme probably but those are your options if I understand your question.
