A lot of people have asked me what a 4.5-5mm silicone implant looks like. I was hesitant to post my pics on here, but I've decided to do this because I do think it is important that people know what to expect and don't have unrealistic expectations (I have severely cropped the pics for privacy reasons). If you already have a high bridge, then yes, maybe a 4.5-5 mm silicone can give you a ton of height. If you're coming from a totally flat bridge, this is probably the best you're gonna get. My bridge WAS very high the first few months (probably from the swelling), and I was so thrilled, but sadly, this is all that's left after six months: http://tinypic.com/r/1zlfalw/8 http://tinypic.com/r/34t90ux/8 http://tinypic.com/r/35jmdub/8 I had a silicone implant through closed rhinoplasty and tip extension (with ear cartilage and Alloderm). No osteotomy or bone work (too invasive for my taste).
