In brief: Informed consent

No, not for a straightforward procedure.
The indications for using artificial material is to replace significant tissue loss especially cartilage/bone. See your surgeon again so that you can ascertain what exactly is being done - an informed consent for surgery means that you know what is being done and know the risks, benefits and limitations of what is being proposed.

In brief: No

Most doctors use cartilage from the septum to help reshape your nose.
Some doctors may use implants in complex cases but would inform you first. Get a consult to discuss your options.
