About ePTFE for rhinoplasty.
The feature of ePTFE (Gore-Tex) is that there are micro-pore.
Tissue grows into the micro-pore of ePTFE, so low rejection to implant compare to Silicone implant.
And when it had a position, it is fixed well.
But because of a micro-pore, it can shrink, so it is hard to control the height of nasal bridge after surgery.
And also it is hard to remove when need to do revision rhinoplasty.
