there is no offical statement that mentioned that goretex is safer than silicone. however there is a stats done by a nose doc in usa. his records shows that goretex has slightly lesser infection compared to silicone.appletree wrote:Hi shermaine,
thats cool cos im going to Dr.Chuang to do e goretex rhino too.
Wonder if u will know how long does it takes for e goretex to settle in its final shape? A goretx will still shirnk (contracts) to a final shape just like silicone rite?
So goretex is safer than silicones in terms of infections & complications??

mine is I gortex with ear and nasal cartilage, think dr. jung uses that on all patients, unless specifically requested for silicone.
the nose shape final stage is depending on ur own healing and how the inner scar develop around the implants. for silicone, the implant may be able to shift after 2- 3 weeks. whileas the goretex, after 2-3 weeks will have better grip as it allows flesh grows around and on it .
for dr chuang, he is worried that spore doc is not able to remove the goretex implant properly when needed, touch wood, thus he suggested silicone as all PS doc is able to remove silicone implant easily. also for some cases, i believe is due to the fact he thinks that person is more suitable for silicone.
