faces, I just wanted to point something out. Did you copy some of your stuff from a site? Because two of the things that you said don't coincide together. In fact, they say the opposite. Thanks :) faces: The augmentation of the nose with the silicone gives the best result. However, sometimes a patie...

foubelle, you are right goretex does have pores. BUT, BOTH your bone cells, and skin cells will grow into it... meaning if you need to remove it, you must separate it from the bone and the skin that have grown into it... which many doctors say is impossible over a long period of time. Silicone, if p...

grumpy, wow... lucky you... you are the fastest healer ever... ----- Yes. Dr. Chuang does use goretex, and silicone. But, in his opinion, goretex is not always the best material to use. It is dependent upon the individual's face and preferences. For my personal case, I already had a good thin modera...

After only 2 weeks, it's definitely going to be swollen.

I had L silicone implant. but Dr. Chuang said that there is cartilage on the top at the tip??... But, the cartilage definitely had to have come from my nose.

candall,

I did nose and epicanthy with Dr. Chuang, as I had double eyelid already... well the epicanthy made my double eyelid lower.. and then later in the States, I did my eyes.

However, I don't think it makes you swollen longer if you do the two together.

grumpy,

I am convinced that everyone heals so differently.

For me, my tip was horrible until two months later after the operation. For the bridge height, it settled into its final look at 7 days... for the thickness (width) of the bridge to come back to normal was 3 weeks...

grumpy, Do you know if you got the L or the I implant? I got the L with Dr. Chuang, and like my nose a lot too. It only gets A LOT prettier in the next three months... actually, mine is still getting prettier and it is almost 4 months. It sounds like you are a fast healer... as my nose tip was reall...

kwell, I'm the same person as in the other forum. That's why it sounded like that. :wink: Btw, aardvark, I don't think you should worry. Dr. Chuang has done nose jobs for many many years... since he was very young. Actually, he told me that my L implant will be placed under cartilage... not really s...

L implant is ok if your surgeon knows what he is doing. for the L implant. The L implant is not in charge of shaping the tip, although it goes there. If you go to a doctor that says that, you either are misunderstanding him, or need to run away. the strut, if used by a good surgeon, only serves two ...

sorry to hear all the problems that people have had with postop... oh... a cast is worn for a nose job when goretex is used.... a heavy duty cast is used when the nose needs to be broken in some way. So, Caucasian people (France, US) will usually have to wear a cast because they are shaving a hump d...

ochti... About the sides of your nose, and tip... It takes a LONG time to deswell. And it's easier to see the deswelling if you compare before and after pictures. I'm at two months... I'm still deswelling! I'm already happy with the results, but it will be even better if it deswells even more. Pleas...

kalyn,

Since you dated him, it's not surprising that he noticed. Also, the other person said you were prettier.

Try not to worry about it.
:)
We all worry... but as more months pass by, the prettier it becomes! :)
