Gore-tex Rhinoplasty implant material used for rhinoplasty or re-shaping of the nose, provides a natural look after surgery, with the new nose adapting perfectly on the patient’s face. The material has great tissue compatibility and is made of porous material that allows the growth of new tissues which will eventually form part of the nasal structure. Plastic surgeons in the Philippines find it easy to mold the implant into the desired shape because of the material’s flexibility.
For many years, rhinoplasty is performed by plastic surgeons using solid silicone implants to re-shape the noses of their patients. However, this synthetic silicone implants have been subjected to numerous complaints and criticisms due to its high rejection rate and for giving an unnatural look. During those times, people who undergo rhinoplasty carried some sort of stigma because of the unsightly look the new nose gave to the person’s face.
Fortunately, a new rhinoplasty implant material was developed and the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery published the 17-year study made to determine the complication rate for said implant material for rhinoplasty – Goretex implant. In the United States and other countries like the Philippines, plastic surgeons are using Gore tex rhinoplasty. Goretex implant material has a high tissue compatibility and has a complication rate of only 1.9 percent which may include swelling, infection and the partial coming out of the implant. And these complications are treatable provided they are not ignored or neglected.
Patients are getting familiar with Gore-tex in the Philippines because of the many cosmetic and plastic surgery clinics endorsing the rhinoplasty implant material. Most patients can have the this procedure without any problem provided the patient has enough external soft tissue coverage and internal tissues inside their nose. Goretex rhinoplasty is preferred by majority of the patients seeking nose enhancement. This implant material is ideal for patients who need to increase the size of the nose, specifically the nasal bridge as concurred by most plastic surgeons in active practice.
Goretex rhinoplasty Philippines patients are more than satisfied with the results of their nose surgery. Unlike the silicone implants where tissues encapsulate around the silicone, Goretex has the ability to incorporate into the surrounding tissue. This eliminates material rejection, nasal contractions and other usual complications. Goretex implant’s pore sizes range from 0.5 to 30 microns. And these pores will be filled by human tissues that grow over time helping the implant to anchor itself properly in the treated area. The implant provides a permanent and natural look which makes the patient happy with the results.
Goretex rhinoplasty assures patient comfort because of the implant material’s softness. It is supple which makes it easy for the plastic surgeon to work with it even in difficult reconstructive procedures. Surgeons are able to work with the material without any difficulty. And the patient experiences little discomfort.
Patients usually resume their normal activities immediately after surgery without worrying for any complication or changes in their lifestyle. Because the implant is safe, a few months after the surgery and the patient can engage in sports activities not worrying about heat exposure. Goretex implants can stand a wide range of temperature without any effect on the appearance of the nose.
Overall, surgeons and patients are pleased with Goretex as it offers a safe implant with excellent healing properties.
