Laser nose surgery: true or false | Iranmedopia

Laser nose surgery, is it true or false? You may want to know if lasers are used in rhinoplasty (rhinoplasty in Iran). In this article, we review laser rhinoplasty. The use of lasers in rhinoplasty is an interesting and new topic. Let’s see if this is true or a myth. For example: Is it possible to remove the dorsal hump using laser technique in rhinoplasty? It sounds like more fiction than fact in our opinion. Some doctors say you can use a laser, but it would result in thermal energy dissipation into tissues possibly causing cell death. The dorsal hump is made up of extra bones, curves, and cartilage.

It is better for the hump removes with a bone chisel and a scalpel to remove the cartilage (using a laser doesn’t make sense).

What is the laser in rhinoplasty? (The application of laser in rhinoplasty)

You hear a lot about laser nose surgery these days. This advertisement emphasizes this issue:

  • You can shape your nose to the desired shape without pain, bleeding, or cutting
  • The complications of rhinoplasty are less this way

It is very interesting and tempting to hear this news. But

  • Research thoroughly before attempting any new work
  • Ask experts to make sure these methods are not false 

Unsafe surgeries may cause injuries that require nose reshaping. Although using lasers in medical science has advanced greatly, it still does not affect the bone and cartilage of the nose. 

What is a laser?

White light is a combination of colored rays that turn white when combined. The lamp emits white light in all directions. But laser focuses and emits these rays of light in one direction. This 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 in the body). 

Nowadays, surgeons use this unique medical property. The laser has found a special place in medical science. Because with a laser, you can cut certain skin or tissue without a razor and bleeding.

Laser nose surgery cost

Laser nose surgery costs little. Why should a new method without pain and bleeding be cheaper? Yes, some people intend to use these methods to defraud (No specialist or surgeon can confirm it).

In the following, we will explain the use of laser in rhinoplasty. On our website, you can read about various topics related to nose jobs and medical tours in Iran.

Is laser rhinoplasty true?

You may want to know what a laser is in rhinoplasty (or cosmetic surgery in general). You have probably seen the miraculous result of laser in the field of eye surgeries and treatments of some diseases. Can we expect this to be a miraculous result in rhinoplasty as well? 

There is no such thing as laser rhinoplasty. A laser is a cutting or destroying tool. Surgeons use lasers only in the following:

  • To reduce enlarged turbinate, inside the nose 
  • To resurface the nasal skin outside (skin resurfacing)
  • For significant cane scarring
  • For a disease called rhinophyma on the dorsum of the nose

Therefore, laser rhinoplasty is not a reality (This is just marketing hype). Surgeons can use lasers to make skin incisions, but they don’t remove the hump.

Laser rhinoplasty is not so false!

Doctors use lasers to remove defects in the skin of the nose. A type of laser known as CO2 for:

  • Treat freckles on the nose
  • Reduce skin thickness
  • Eliminate acne and scars on the nose

The laser removes the outer layer, which strengthens the skin’s collagen. As a result, the appearance of the nose is beautiful and well-proportioned. 

Are you a candidate for laser rhinoplasty?

Laser rhinoplasty is not suitable for everyone. Who are the ideal candidates for laser rhinoplasty?

  • People who have blood clotting problems 
  • Those who are diabetic (insulin-dependent)
  • People who recently had a tan

In addition to the above factors, skin type also affects the success rate of laser treatment on each person.

For this method to work safely and effectively, there are conditions that you must consider:

  • Absence of coagulation disorders
  • No insulin-dependent diabetes
  • No tanning of the skin (recently)
  • Suitable skin type 

We hope that one-day nose surgery will be possible without a razor and bleeding. At present using the laser in surgery does not affect.
