I was wondering since you had your nose done with Dr. Hsu. Do you have his email address? How much did it cost you? I also have a flat-ish nose and I'm considering rib grafting but I'm not sure. I heard your nose will be stiffer or hard, is it true?
I think all augmented nose will be stiffer and harder than one which hasn't been, but some are harder than the rest. I haven't actually felt silicon, goretex or ear cartilage augmented ones so I can't give you an accurate comparison, but according to what I have read, goretex and ear cartilage are probably the less "stiff" materials. Silicone... depends on the type chosen; some are harder, some are softer. Rib grafts are pretty hard but are therefore ideal if you need to bring your tip down. They can be use to build sound internal structures for major reconstruction which other materials can't. Silicone are hard enough for major reconstruction but there is a risk of extrusion.
