2 months post op of Rhinoplasty, I had my silicone implants removed. Will my nose go back to normal?

It's really much to early to know for sure but whatever the result, there are means to correct the situation. This cold take the form of further surgery with grafts, or sometimes, injections. We have had excellent results with microdroplet silicone injections. While controversial, when done properly, it has proven highly effective in certain cases.
Even at this early stage, you should have some idea of the shape of the nose, even though it is swollen. Talk to your surgeon and get his ideas of what he thinks will result and the possible treatment options.
Removal if infected silicone implant.
Will my nose resume its preoperative state following removal of an infected silicone prosthesis?
- If there was not a significant amount of other surgery performed at the time of the placement of your implant I would expect it to return to its preoperative state. This however may take a number of months. I would not recommend surgical revision for at least six months from the date of your implant removal. I would strongly consider using your own tissues to correct your nose. You should discussed this at length with your board-certified plastic surgeon at the time of your next visit. Best wishes!
