The Implant Has MovedThis occurs when the nasal septum is weak or warped and the nose tip is forcibly raised without understanding the structure of the nose. We relocate the existing cartilage and use additional cartilage to build a sturdy pillar to prevent cartilage turning to one side.
Inproportional or UnaturalThe surgery was carried out poorly or with a bad surgery plan. Through sufficient consultation, the surgery is customized to take into account the personal preference, skin & body condition and overall harmony of one's face.
Capsular Contracture by ImplantsThe most complicated case of revision. Skin and cartilage tissues contracted by infection must be precisely separted and dissected so that they can be streched enough. Septal, ear cartilage, rib cartilage or other self materials are sued to rebuild the tip to prevent side effects or deviation re-occuring. For the bridge, we can use one's own tissues such as dermis to build up the height.
Change in the Shape of Nose TipThe nose tip can sometimes drop or be pulled up (in case of previously short nose) within 3-6 months due to nasal septum depressor (muscle) and/or absorption of the implanted cartilage. In this case, the tip of the nose can be raised with additional cartilage.
Implant being visible through skinLowering the height of the implant or replacing it with a thinner implant, or correcting the phenomenon by covering the implant with dermis or fascia can be done.
InflammationIn case of local inflammation, it can be controlled by using antibiotics. In case of inflammation related to the implant, the implant should be removed as soon as possible, and revision can be performed during removal or later on using self-cartilage tissue.
