Hello Dr. Lam,
I am an asian rhinoplasty patient. I am 3 week into my surgery and I regret it very much. I didnt realize how it would really feel to have a silicone implant in my nose. I really would like to take out the silicone. However I also had a lateral osteotomy done to make my bridge between my eyes narrower and was wondering how long should I wait to take out the implant and would taking out the implant make my face look odd since I also got the lateral osteotomy? Are there any risks involved in taking out the silicone this early and once I take the silicone out will I be able to feel my nose again? Also since I got the osteotomy, will my nose contract or anything once the silicone is out? And lastly, sicne I just recently had my nose done, would the healing time double/ be worst than before? I really regret doing this. Please help me. Thank you very much.
