Nose Surgery Laser
<p style=”text-align: justify;”>Laser rhinoplasty is a new surgical technique. It is non-invasive and healing time is a lot quicker, but it can however, only be used in certain cases.
It is primarily used to correct a deformity of the nose, known as acne rosacea, which is a condition caused by bacteria in the pores of the skin, and which appears as red bumps on the surface of the skin.
Another condition that causes thickening of the skin, known as rhinophyma, can also be treated with laser rhinoplasty.
In instances where the tip of the nose is noticeably large to the extent that it disfigures the face, due to thick skin, laser rhinoplasty can be used together with standard rhinoplasty surgery.</p>
<h2 style=”text-align: justify;”>Things you need to know about Laser Rhinoplasty</h2>
<p style=”text-align: justify;”>A laser rhinoplasty is only applicable for few instances. Thus, not all nose deformities can be fixed, the treatment has its own limitation. Below are some information that you need to consider when getting a laser rhinoplasty:
• It is a non-surgical procedure, meaning no reconstructions done on your nose’s bones and cartilages.
• Unlike other non-surgical nose jobs, laser Rhinoplasty does not require injections of cosmetic fillers which can only last for a year or two.
• Bleeding and scarring are completely eliminated.
• The skin of the nose, most especially the nasal tip, is the main target.
• Severe acne or Rhinophyma can significantly create thickened and bumped skin then eventually deforming the nose. With laser treatment, the skin is made even.</p>
<p style=”text-align: justify;”>• The heat emitted by the laser destroys the top layers of the skin, correcting and resurfacing the bumps.
• A Carbon Dioxide or CO2 laser is commonly used to remove thick layers of skin with minimal heat damage to the surrounding structures.
• During the laser treatment, a warmth and tingling sensation can be felt. Pain is very minimal, though a local anesthesia can still be used.
• Natural shedding of the skin occurs after it is burned, healing takes place at this point.
• Treat it as getting a “sunburn”, use only mild soap to clean the area. Do not rub vigorously.
• Throughout the recovery process, the burned skin is eventually replaced by a new, thinner and smoother skin.</p>
<h2 style=”text-align: justify;”>Who Can Have Laser Rhinoplasty?</h2>
<p style=”text-align: justify;”>This procedure is not suitable for everyone. Individuals who have problems with blood clotting, are diabetic (dependent on insulin) or recently sun-tanned are not ideal candidates for laser rhinoplasty.
In addition to the above factors, skin type also plays a part in how effective the rhinoplasty procedure will be on any one individual.
Laser rhinoplasty is also a good option for people whose nose has lost its shape or is deformed due to a condition such as cancer or because of a severe accident. However not everybody is an eligible candidate for this procedure and for you to safely have this surgery there are a few conditions you must meet.
No clotting disorders
Not for people with insulin dependent diabetics
Should not have recent skin tan
Skin type should be suitable
Must have crossed growth-spurt age
Must be sound and stable psychologically</p>
<p style=”text-align: justify;”>Always discuss whether or not your skin type is suitable at your initial consultation with the rhinoplasty surgeon.</p>
<h2 style=”text-align: justify;”>How Laser Rhinoplasty Works</h2>
<p style=”text-align: justify;”>A CO2 laser is used for the removal of thickened skin on the nose. The laser produces a slight stinging, but warm feeling so a local anaesthetic is usually used.
As the laser heats the skin, it causes superficial damage. This is then followed by the nose shedding the layer of damaged skin as it heals, and therefore revealing the new healthy layer of skin beneath.</p>
<h2 style=”text-align: justify;”>After Laser Rhinoplasty</h2>
<p style=”text-align: justify;”>As with cases of extreme sunburn, you would be required to wash the skin with a gentle, non-drying cleanser and then pat the area dry.
Rubbing during the washing process must be avoided as it will cause further harm to the delicate and damaged skin.
This aftercare is of the utmost importance.</p>
<h2 style=”text-align: justify;”>Cost of Laser Rhinoplasty</h2>
<p style=”text-align: justify;”>Laser rhinoplasty is classified by the FDA as a procedure, and as such is not usually covered by health insurance companies as it is not deemed as a proven medical treatment, so cost has to be an important consideration.</p>
<p style=”text-align: justify;”>Enquire for specific prices with your surgeon, but laser rhinoplasty should not exceed $4,000.</p>
<p style=”text-align: justify;”>Laser rhinoplasty is a non-surgical procedure which can dramatically improve an individual’s appearance with a speedy recovery and minimal pain and discomfort.</p>
