Asian female rhinoplasty. What do you think I should be aware of before removing my implant?

Q: Will 2 mm of silicone implant make a huge difference for Asian females (considering typical Asians have flat nose)? I am thinking to remove my nasal implant because the bridge looks “fake” and too high, and I am not going to replace it with another implant. What do you think I should be aware of before removing my implant?

A: Some of the things to consider when undergoing removal of a silicone implant is the type of implant that was placed, the duration of placement, and the performance of any adjunctive rhinoplasty maneuvers during the surgery.

What this means in plain English is that if only a dorsal implant was placed, without resecting the bridge and without tip work, then your nose will return to your pre-operative state when this is removed.  In any other scenario, simply removing the implant will unfortunately not restore your pre-op nose.
