Nose Surgery Without Tampon

In brief; Nasal aesthetic surgery (Rhinoplasty) is a surgery that reshapes the nose. By this operation, deformities in the nose are corrected and the functions of the nose are reshaped. It is one of the most requested and performed aesthetic operations.

Although nasal surgeries are mostly performed due to aesthetic concerns, some of our patients undergo operations to correct the problems that occurred after trauma or congenital reasons. We can solve the problems that affect the functionality of our nose, the organ which makes us breath, by nose surgery.

Nose deformities that patients want to be corrected frequently; nasal hump, collapsing nasal cartilages, nasal tip deformity, low nasal tip, large nasal wings and narrow nasal bone angle. Methods of correction of these deformities; Along with the open / closed rhinoplasty techniques, with the development of laser technology, laser aesthetic technique. Because tampon is not used in this technique, we can also call it Tamponless Nose Surgery.

In rhinoplasty operations performed with laser,  thicker nasal skin can be thinned by  CO2 laser . Because of this application, the surface thick layer of the skin is peeled and the damage to the nose is minimal and a faster recovery period is experienced. When this technique is performed, especially on thicker skin, a healthier skin layer appears in time. While the healing period continues, the damaged skin layer is also peeled off.

Performing of this technique is dangereous in patients who suffer from uncontrolled diabetes and bleeding clotting problems.

The advantages of this technique, alongside being tamponless are;

  • Have a shorter recovery period
  • It makes possible to Reshape the nose without a major surgical operation
  • It is performed by Local anesthesia
  • No need to buffer
  • The duration of staying in hospital is short
  • Low complication rate
  • Rapid healing process in patients with thick skin
