The right choice of implant for individuals is the first step of a successful rhinoplasty surgery.
Just like everyone has different size of nose bridge, skin tissue, and shape, there are different types of implants for each individual’s condition.
Let’s take a look at different advantages and disadvantages of each materials used for rhinoplasty surgery.
Silicone nasal implants is one of the most common materials used for reconstructive rhinoplasty. This is especially popular among Asians who seek to achieve height in the nasal bridge and add definition to the nasal tip. It uses a synthetic material, which is specially fit and inserted over the skeletal bridge. There are different shapes and sizes depending on the length and width of the patient’s nose. But, the most common shapes are the L-shape and I-shape. It usually comes pre-formed, but your surgeon can trim and sculpt the implant depending on the shape and size of the new nose you have discussed upon.
Another common material used to enhance the shape of the nose is Gore-Tex. It uses a material called expanded polytetrafluoroethylene (e-PTFE), which is commonly used in ski and camping outfits. Aside from rhinoplasty, the material is also used to fill facial lines, wrinkles, plump up the lips and chin and cheek augmentation.
The material is made out of pliable and porous material, which allows tissue in-growth to develop. This means that the new tissue growth after the surgery will bind with the material and eventually forms part of the nasal structure. This leaves out the possibility of malposition, as the implant is securely anchored and attached to the nasal structure.
Silitex is an rhinoplasty implant which is combined the all the advantages of silicone and Gore-tex implant.  It has very low chance of deformation and infection or inflammation.  This implant is most apporiate for those with thick skin, especially for men.

Nasal Septum, Ear, and Rib Cartilage
 Natural cartilage are used for the nose tip surgery and ommon cartilage grafts used are from the nasal septal, ear and rib. This lessens the risk of developing infection, since the “material” used comes from the patient. It requires harvesting cartilage from the donor site and surgically inserted into the nose to achieve the size, shape and contour of the desired new nose.
