(I already knew that long ago) ANOTHER, friend found her nose bridge becoming uneven with humps along the way, and the height decreasing within 6 months postoperative. Had it removed and replaced with silicone and tip autologous graft from rib for added support and projection.
We also found out that Gortex is structurally unstable material as it loses volume, thickness and length with time (remember some of you said yours noses looking better with time?? ..... cos its losing volume and becoming softer and rate of infection is still higher than silicone albeit it comes with his complications, too.
Its 4 week post op, here are my findings:
1. Soft ---> uneven contour by sight and touch; tend to lose volume post operative.
2. Hard to remove with time (past 6 mths is worst) unlike silicone
3. Tends to destroy surrounding tissues during removal
4. Hard to shape because it is soft,hence result is not as predictable as compared to silicone
5. Fibrovascular tissue ingrowth into pores is minimal
If you guys interested in a publised Korean report on Gortex, let me know.

But could that be part of the deswelling process? When I say "collapse", I mean the part where it used to be "correct" changed to a different shape, in his case, the bridge WAS straight and now it CURVED!!! Now, do you think deswelling should make a nose bridge curve???I also read that the tip is the slowest to deswell... you said his tip projection is not good... what did the doctor use for the tip projection?
Could it be he didnt project it as much as your friend wanted it to be? Like a miscommunication or something? His tip is still 20% swollen, it is bulbous and round, but from his profile, one cannot see much projection EVEN WITH SWELLING, so my question is........can you imagine the tip without the swelling ?? Leave it to you to ponder..........
Please share with us why the infection rate of goretex is higher than silicon.
and... sorry my english is not very good.. hehehe
What is " Fibrovascular tissue ingrowth into pores is minimal" ?
Thanks for sharing...
