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.
