The nasal silicone implant is often used to build up the nasal bridge.
However, the silicone implant is a foreign material.
Therefore, it has the risk of infection, nasal contraction and other complications.
1) Unhappy with the result
2) Silicone movement
3) Silicone extrusion or protrusion
5) Contracted nose
Firstly, Nasal silicone implant removal surgery is often performed on patients who are unhappy with the result.
Secondly, if nasal silicone implant placed incorrectly, it can shift over time causing an unnatural look.
Especially, if patients has a thin skin, the sharp outline of a synthetic implant can be extremely noticeable, resulting in a very unnatural look.
Another very significant complication is excessive pressure on, and thinning of the nasal skin with silicone extrusion or protrusion.
When you need to remove nasal silicone implant, it is important to find a surgeon who experienced and expert in revision rhinoplasty.
In case silicone implant placed incorrectly, movement or unsatisfied result, then it is OK that exchange it to another type of silicone or gore-tex implant.
However if it caused infection, nasal contraction or other complications, then should not use artificial material again.
Patient’s own ear or rib cartilage is the best material.
Or you can choose donated-rib cartilage if you don’t want to have a painful procedure with the harvesting of rib cartilage and a scar on that area.
But we strongly recommend use patient’s rib cartilage.
