These days, there are a lot of people talking about laser nose surgery. In many advertisements, it is emphasized that without pain, bleeding and incision, you can shape your nose to the desired shape and form; and with this way, the complications of nose surgery are less. It is very interesting and tempting to hear this news but is it true? And is it performable on all kinds of noses?
White light is a combination of colored rays that have turned white when combined. The lamp emits white light in all directions. But the laser focuses and emits these rays of light in one direction, which concentrates the energy of all the rays of light in a small beam.
The laser has more power and energy that can affect that tissue by focusing on a specific point on the body. Today, this unique medical property is frequently used and lasers have found a special place in medical science; because with lasers, a certain skin or tissue can be cut without a razor and bleeding.
People with bony nose that don’t want a lot of change and only want to correct the appearance of their nose are good candidates for this kind of surgery.
Unfortunately, the answer is NO! Laser has many therapeutic applications and is very effective for skin changes and beauty; but it is not able to shrink the nose, shave big humps of bones, strengthen cartilage, shorten or lengthen the nose.
Lasers can be used to cut tissues. Laser incisions cause less bleeding and less complications from rhinoplasty. In addition, many nasal surgery cases require a reduction in skin thickness. Sometimes part of shaping and correcting the appearance of the nose requires changing the thickness of the skin on part or all of the surface of the nose.
In fleshy nose surgery, strengthening the nasal cartilage is very important. The fleshy nose has thick skin and weak cartilage. Even by touch, you can tell if the nose is fleshy or bony. In a fleshy nose you can hardly touch the bone tissue; and you can feel the tenderness of the cartilage with your fingers.
The important point in the operation of a fleshy nose is that this tissue should not be weakened. Otherwise by shaving the bone and cartilage tissue, the strength of the nose will decrease; and consequently the nose will sag or so-called come back! For this reason, to prevent this complication, they borrow from the cartilage of the ribs or ears. In this case, they can strengthen the cartilage of the nose; This will increase the strength of the fleshy nose after rhinoplasty and will not return. In other words, the shape of the nose remains stable.
As we said in the article, you can only and only correct some abnormalities with the laser, even in a bony nose; so a fleshy nose can easily sag after a laser nose surgery due to the weakness of cartilage tissue.
