Other names: Gore-Tex, ePTFE, Expanded Polytetrafluoroethylene

PTFE is a synthetic polymer commonly used in nonstick pans (Teflon) and insulators of computer cables.

ePTFE, a form of PTFE, was co-invented by father and son Wilbert and Robert Gore (Gore-Tex) in 1969 when they accidentally expanded PTFE to create a porous and lightweight material containing 70% air.

Medically, ePTFE are used as an artificial substitute for replacing damaged blood vessels. This use negates the need to harvest vessels from another location.

Goretex or ePTFE use as nasal implants started only during the late 1990s (early 2000s in Asia and almost a decade later in the Philippines). Initially, they were in the form spongy sheets where cosmetic surgeons lay them on top of each other, stitch them together, then place over nose bridge area to provide the lift. Results then were not gratifying, until recently, when Goretex are produced in the form fit for nose lifting (augmentation). They are now shaped like those of silicone implants as a one piece implant (where minimal carving is required).

Advantages of Goretex over Silicone implant:

1. Less chance of having implant extrusion since it has a softer and lighter consistency.

2. More permanent because of its porous surface (tissue tend to adhere to it thus less displacement).

3. Less chance of implant rejection.

4. More Natural looking.

Noselift (Augmentation Rhinoplasty) and Alar Base Trimming (Alarplasty)

Difference between Nose Lift and Alar Trimming
1. Noselift involves raising the bony bridge and soft tip of the nose while Alar Trimming removes a portion of the sides of the wide nostrils or Ala to reduce it.

2. Noselifting uses implants (Silicone or Goretex) or cartilage to achieve the result while Nose Trimming does not.

3. Noselift alone can be done on a subject. In contrast,  It is not recommended to do Trimming as a single procedure. Doing Alarplasty alone may lower the nose tip resulting to the flattening and elongated effect of the nose. This may not be aesthetically appealing.
Exceptions would be for patients with already high bridge and pronounced tip (rarely seen in Asians).

4. When done simultaneously, the implant is inserted first before trimming in order not to over-correct the removal of excess Ala (sides of the nose).

5. Stitch removal for Noselift is on the 7th day while it takes longer for  Alarplasty at 12th-14th day.

6. In Alarplasty, you may be limited by your surgeon to smile or open your mouth wide during recovery period as this may disrupt the approximation of the trimmed Ala. This should last for around 3-4 weeks.

7. Minimal flaring of the Ala may not need trimming because doing the Noselift will essentially reduce by a certain degree the sides of the Ala and the size of the nostrils. The shape of he nostrils will also improve.

8. Alar base trimming or Alarplasty is reserved for disproportionately wide Ala or nostrils or subject to the recommendation of your surgeon.
