In Reply to: Re: don't know about that one but silicone implants correct saddleback. posted by Rita on November 04, 2000 at 21:00:31:
I am told and have read that the rib tends to warp (curl) and absorb over time. What's the point in having that done if you have to do it again in a few years? The silicone implant would not absorb and the Hydroxy Apatite will only absorb slightly but not curl. The porous structure of the HA will allow for bone integration. But as far as I know it's the cartilaginous area or lack there of that Paloma needs augmentation for not the bony area. What is it that you think YOU need?
But, as you know only a qualified surgeon can make a diagnosis of one's needs, not someone over a message board. Even a PS couldn't really make a complete diagnosis without having seen the patient up close adn personal. Through photos it is easier but for most things they have to test your skin and tissue out etc, not some "hmmm explain to me and I will work wonders" type of thing, But you know that. :) Are you going to Dr E soon? Anyone?
