Post Infection Nose

The Rhinoplasty Clinic Pte Ltd.

Infection rates are much higher when using alloplastic implants such as silicone and goretex. That is the reason why autologous (from your own body) materials are so much better and safer. Once there is implant infection, the soft tissue injury and scarring will frequently lead to formation of a contracted nose. In essence, infection leads to destruction of soft tissue and cartilage alike, and the subsequent scarring can cause significant deformity.
