Nose Surgery Materials
01. Nose Implants
Silicon is the most popular material to be used for nose implants. Detailed and exquisite design is no problem for silicone, and it is widely used for nose implants because of its strong supporting and less incidents of shape changing. The silicone proudly presents no sticking to any tissues or skins, thus giving you an unchanging nose line.
This is the right nose implants fit for thin skinned individuals. With its microscopic holes, compared to silicon, it has a soft and natural finish, easily sticking on to the skin. But, the nose might get lower as the time goes by.
Silitex has the strengths of both silicon and gore-tex for nose implants. It has strong supporting fixture so it is suitable for people who want a sharp nose, and it hardly changes. It is often used for thicker skins and men’s nose implants for surgery.
The septum cartilage is popularly used because it has a very strong supporting fixture. It shows no reflections for a thin skin, and there are no needed extra incisions because it is easily extractable from the already incising area.
We take out the cartilages from the ear where it doesn’t do any functions. It is easy to extract since it is open. Elasticity is very good so it doesn’t break, and it is the best fit for nose implantations. There is almost no visibility even if you have a thin skin.
We take the costal cartilage out where it is under 2 cm of the chest, and it is located on the 7th bone. The costal cartilage has enough resource since it is long and thin straight line and has a low chance of getting infections. It has small absorbability and the support is great, so we use it on collapsed or shortened nose from many surgeries.
Self-corium is a corium layer that is between the skin layers. It is very soft and durable. Corium has a variety of thickness from 1mm to 7mm and we extract it from the under buttocks or the thighs. We often use it for extra support after lifting the nose tip.
Since it is from the thighs or the buttocks, it has almost no immunity resistance. We use it for extra support after the nose surgery. It needs no incisions since it is applied by an injection.
The fascia covers around the outer muscles, and it has fewer side effects if extracted from the inner scalps or the legs. Since it is a thin tissue, it is used to softly cover the materials and it prevents the thinning or visibility. It is effective when used on a thin skin.
03. Artificial Tissue
This is a material that has removed the cells from the corium and extracted the elastic capabilities. It is soft like skin and is used to naturalize the nose tip.
If it is hard to use the septum cartilage we choose this artificial tissue, which has microscopic holes that enhances the sticking to the skin. This guarantees the lifting when inserted in the nose bridge.
If a surgery or the healing time is too heavy of a burden, this allows to simply lift the nose tip, Synergy uses the ones with calcium that is approved by the FDA.
