Disfiguring enlargement of the nose, or rhinopyma, resulting from the growth of soft tissue, can be effectively treated with a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser. Dr. Renuka Diwan is able to beautifully sculpt the nose with this laser sculpting procedure.
After numbing with anesthetic injection, the focused beam of the CO2 laser is utilized to cut through and remove the excess tissue. Final sculpting is gently completed with the laser beam to achieve a normalized shape of the nose.
You will need to spend some time recovering after your laser sculpting treatment for rhinophyma. Dr. Diwan will provide you with detailed care instructions upon the completion of your procedure. Healing is completed in about two to three weeks.
It will be some time before you are able to see the final results of your procedure. Once the healing is complete, any disfigurement caused by rhinophyma will be dramatically reduced or eliminated. Redness of the newly healed skin will gradually fade over several weeks. Patients are often overjoyed with the look of their new nose and experience life-changing boosts in their levels of self-confidence.
