Is radio frequency treatment safe to be applied over a silicone implant?


I am considering radio frequency skin tightening but I have had a nose augmentation previously. I am wondering if radio frequency treatment is safe to be applied over the silicone implant? Will the it melt the silicone implant or cause inflammation?




 Great question. If we are taking about a nasal silicone implant then, your concern could be justified. Please address your concerns with the plastic surgeon who will be supervising your therapy.
