Abstract:   (33 Views)
Fillers, including Gore-Tex, have been long utilized for reconstructive procedures, as well as for aesthetic purposes.  We report a 46-year female who presented to the plastic surgeon to remove a previous nasolabial implant. The tissue was removed and examined using hematoxylin and eosin staining. Three histologic patterns were seen: encapsulation around a large part of the material, without giant cells, nor inflammation; peripheral colonization by fibrous tissue, blending with normal soft tissue, and thickening of adjacent skin. We present a mixed histologic pattern, featuring a partial peri-implant fibrous capsule, fibrous tissue merging with surrounding normal soft tissue and focal skin thickening.
