I’ve heard of both Goretex and silicone implants used in rhinoplasty. Is one better than the other?
Both of these different materials are used in rhinoplasty. Gore-Tex is probably used more commonly in the United States and silicone in Asia. Both are safe in the right hands and in the right locations and both can also have significant complications. In our practice we preferentially utilize cartilage from the patient’s own sources or potentially donor cartilage.
