You told me you do goretex on asians with low bridges.. what's the advantage of using goretex instead of silicone? Will the goretex be more stable in ur nose in terms of going back to contact sports i.e. Football, basketball, wresting etc, pillow fights and any activities that could possibly mean u getting hit, pushed, touched or shoved in the nose? i know with a silicone in my nose the thing woudl shift immediately if something came near my nose even 10 years post-op..
SO for someone active like me that would like to raise the bridge by 3mm max with the most natural looking/feeling nose and at the same time be able continue being active without worrying about my nose falling off is goretex the way to go?
Also if ur goretex is to ever get infected within what timeframe post-op would that happen? Or is it inevitable just like silicone?
One thing that worries me is that it's hard to remove, and it's only been around for 7 years so there are possibilities that the long-term side effects are yet to be discovered correct?
I spoke to another dr about alar-plasty (reduction) and he was opposed to it because he said if I did decide to augment my bridge with midpor my tip would automatically be raised and the nostrils would narrow a bit.. is this the same with Goretex and any other implants?
