Rhinoplasty with Facial Fillers and the Laser Advantage

One of the latest trends in rhinoplasty is a newly evolved technique that uses facial fillers to augment the nose. Plastic surgeons may inject Radiesse® Restylane®, Perlane® or Juvederm® and sometimes Botox to perform a nose job in 15 minutes or so. Facial Fillers and Botox may be used to improve an enlarged nose tip, a low and wide nasal bridge, a ski-slope, bumpy nose or crooked nose. The results of the procedure may be temporary, lasting 4 to 12 months depending upon of the type of filler used in treatment. Yet, the costs are reasonable and the procedure is minimally invasive, so people usually do not mind returning for maintenance treatment. Now, there is another advantage for people interested in nose enhancement through facial fillers.

Because there may be bruising for up to two weeks following injectible use, Candela Corporation began to research how they could improve initial outcomes following injectible use. Candela announced study findings which show that a laser can speed up the healing process and improves results. In the March/April 2009 issue of the Archives of Facial Plastic Surgery, an article entitled: “Pulsed-Dye Laser for Treating Ecchymoses After Facial Cosmetic Procedures” suggested that Candela’s Vbeam® laser treatment used after injectibles resulted in a 63% mean improvement within a 48 to 72 hours thereafter. Other researchers studied the safety and efficacy of improvement following laser treatment. The results of this study are documented in a 2009 ASLMS abstract, entitled: “A Simple Solution to a Common Problem”. The results were remarkable. Patients were evaluated twenty four hours following treatment. Average improvement for study participants that received Vbeam laser treatment was 62%.

The premise is that the use of the laser helps to repair injured blood vessels. Blood vessels that are injured following injections may not provide adequate oxygen to the skin, tissue and cells for healing. In this way, healing is improved with the use of a laser following injectibles for nose enhancement.

A Tip to Prevent Nose Surgery Infections

A Tip to Prevent Nose Surgery Infections
Many people interested in nose surgery seek out the procedure because of repeated nasal congestion and sinus infections, among other medical conditions. Add this to the risk for infection following surgery that exists with all medical procedures, a closer look at methods to reduce the risk of infection is important. Plastic surgeons take precautions to reduce the risk of infection following nose surgery. There are also tasks that you may perform to reduce the risk of infection.

Researchers at the Mayo Clinic found that white blood cells cluster together in nasal and sinus mucous to produce a toxic protein. The level of toxic protein in patients prone to sinus infections far exceeded the amount necessary to damage membranes and creates infection susceptibility. In fact, the quantity of mucous was not relative, but the quality of mucous was.-1- Plastic surgeons will remove nasal mucous during nose surgery to reduce the risk of infection. However, the development of an infection may relate to the body’s biological response of producing toxins in mucous.
By the same token, there are guidelines that your plastic surgeon will recommend to reduce the risk of infection from nose surgery. There is also the number one way to prevent infection following nose surgery- hand washing. Hand washing is particularly important following nose surgery because of the desire to touch the nose or provide care to the nose following nose surgery. Tips help to ensure appropriate hand washing techniques are, as follows:

Washing Times: Washing hands before and after daily living tasks, including: after restroom use, bodily fluid contact such as sneezing, before and after nose touching, before food preparation and eating.
Times When You Can’t Wash: Anti-bacterial hand sanitizers containing more than 60% alcohol help prevent the spread of infectious microorganisms.
Water Temperature: Cold water has not been found to be effective for hand cleansing. Hot water may be drying to the skin. Warm water may be the best temperature choice for hand cleansing.

Lather: Lathering by rubbing your hands together for more than 30 seconds helps to ensure clean hands, nails and between the fingers.
Rinse: Starting with your wrists first, rinse your hands to provide for cleanliness.
Faucet Turn Off: Use a paper towel or washcloth to turn the faucet off. Bacteria can be found on faucets.

Malnutrition and Massive Weight Loss Plastic Surgery Don’t Mix

Malnutrition presents a major risk factor for complications in massive weight loss plastic surgery, according to a study published in the December 2008 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dennis Hurwtiz, MD, a co-author of the study, found that patients who received multi-vitamins, nutritional drinks and mineral supplements prior to plastic surgery significantly decreased their risk for complications, improved scar quality and accelerated wound healing.
The study involved an analysis of over 100 participants and over of half of the participants had not received dietary supplementation prior to plastic reconstructive surgery. Of the participants that did not receive supplementation prior to surgery, 76% had experienced complications and poor wound healing. Only 19% of the participants that had received supplementation prior to plastic surgery experienced major complications and poor wound healing.
The participants that did not receive dietary supplementation underwent reconstructive plastic surgery prior to 2005 at a time when many plastic surgeons first began performing reconstructive plastic surgery on massive weight loss victims. The study noted that participants that used supplements experienced enhanced wound healing, collagen production and immune response was through protein, vitamin A, vitamin B complex, Vitamin C, Arginine, Glutamine, Iron, Zinc and Selenium.
The study results demonstrate progress among members of the plastic surgery community that are interested in helping massive weight loss victims. Post bariatric plastic surgery was not readily available before the 2000 year. Since then, two organizations have been established to better support the needs of massive weight loss victims.
