6 warning signs! What kind of nose is "silicone" close to breaking through?

      When it comes to the most popular cosmetic surgeries nowadays, rhinoplasty is definitely one that can't be overlooked. Not only does it enhance facial aesthetics and dimensions, but it also helps correct nasal shape issues. While successful nose jobs look great, there are cases where things go wrong, especially with over-augmented noses. The consequences can include thinning of the nasal tip and the risk of silicone protrusion.

  • Feeling a depression when touching the nasal tip
          The feeling of a depression at the nasal tip after touching it results from silicone being pushed too close to the skin, making the skin around the tip thinner. This is a clear sign that your nose is nearing perforation.
  • The skin around the nasal tip appears thinner than usual
          If, upon inspection, you notice that the skin around your nasal tip reflects light or appears thinner than usual, it indicates that the tissue around the nasal tip has become significantly thinner, revealing the silicone underneath the skin.

  • Changes in the color of the skin around the nose
          In such cases, the nose has become thinner, causing the skin around it to have a different color from the surrounding skin, such as turning red, dark, or pale.
  • Developing cystic acne around the nasal tip
          For those experiencing cystic acne around the nasal tip, no matter what treatment is applied, it does not go away. In contrast, the acne may worsen, causing inflammation, leading to infected tissue around the silicone, resulting in thinner skin around the nose and potential perforation.

  • Changes in nasal shape
          If your nasal shape starts to elongate and deform abnormally, typically found in cases of long-term nose augmentation, it may cause the tissue covering the silicone to become thicker and harder, resulting in deformation, tilting, or descent of the silicone, leading to a thinner nose and possible perforation.
  • Feeling pain around the nasal tip
          If you feel persistent pain around the nasal tip for an extended period, and the pain worsens or does not subside, in some cases accompanied by cloudy fluid or pus discharge, it indicates inflammation and infection, which may lead to nasal perforation.


How to Deal with Near-Perforated Silicone Nose
  • In cases without severe symptom (early consultation with a doctor or no signs of inflammation), if the doctor determines that the nose can be corrected immediately, there is no need for recovery. In such nose correction procedures, the doctor may adjust the silicone nose shape to better suit you, particularly regarding flexibility and the appropriate silicone shape for your nasal tissue, to prevent nasal perforation.
  • In severe cases such as a darkening nasal tip, where the tissue around the nasal tip may have died, resulting in the need for silicone removal and recovery. Afterward, when reinserting silicone, the doctor may use various soft bones, such as soft ear cartilage or soft rib bones, to provide support to the nasal tip, preventing nasal perforation, and may adjust the height to better suit your nasal tissue.

      When you notice these warning signs, it indicates that your nose is close to perforation. However, if silicone rods are protruding, it indicates that your nose has already perforated. If you experience any of these symptoms, refrain from doing anything, especially touching the nasal tip, as it may cause inflammation and infection. It's best to promptly consult a doctor. Delaying medical attention may lead to severe consequences.
