Goretex and donated rib have same infection rate of 1%. (Chances of infection are the same for all materials.)
We do not use donated rib for dorsal augmentation.
We can make a natural looking nose with any material.
Unlike the silicone Goretex does not shift,extrude, or become visible nearly over time.
> Hi Doctor,
> I'm Jane between using Gortex implant or donated rib to increase my dorsum height. What's the resorption or warp rate for donated rib cartilage? Which material would yield the most natural looking nose? How much does the donated rib rhinoplasty cost?
> I'm concerned that gortex will be very difficult to remove if the nose gets infected. Does goretex shift, extrude, or become visible like silicone over time? What's the infection rate for gortex?
