Have you reached a point where you just want to get rid of your nasal hump for a clean, smooth nasal bridge?
If you’re considering rhinoplasty to remove that unwanted bump on your nose, you might want to minimize any risk of over-reduction to ensure the results are as natural as possible. To do that, you’ll need a minimally invasive procedure and a technique that focuses on precision.
VAPOR NOSE® is an advanced piece of technology designed to remove nasal humps based on radiofrequency. It doesn’t cause extra scarring and allows more flexibility and precision during the procedure, reducing risks and helping your surgeon achieve the best results.
Not everyone can take advantage of VAPOR NOSE®. It was originally developed by Dr. Theodore Diktaban and requires specific tools and understanding of the technique to use.
How does it work?
The VAPOR NOSE® technique is performed through a handheld device that emits radiofrequency beams onto the cartilage. This means your surgeon can make small, precise changes to the bumps on your nose without using a knife or scissors.
Because the technique allows for incremental changes, it’s easier to reduce the bump to the exact size you want, minimizing the risk of over-reduction that can leave your nose looking unnatural.
The name comes from the fact that the unwanted bump essentially gets “vaporized” during the procedure. One minute it’s there, the next minute it’s gone. As simple as that.
Comparisons with other rhinoplasty procedures
VAPOR NOSE® only affects the nasal cartilage. It doesn’t damage the skin or leave extra scars. Scarring would only occur in the event that Dr. Diktaban uses an open nasal approach. But this will only happen if a closed approach is not possible.
Your ability to receive anesthesia won’t be affected either, and you can expect a normal recovery time. The technique is noninvasive and will not affect your sinuses or your breathing.
Things to consider
Because this is innovative technology, not everyone is trained to use the necessary tools. It’s important to seek out a specialist with a thorough understanding of the technique.
As the inventor of the technique, Dr. Diktaban will make sure the proper skills are being applied. Whenever possible, he’ll use the closed nasal approach rather than the open approach so he can avoid external scarring.
The precision that comes with VAPOR NOSE® allows Dr. Diktaban to achieve the best results, leaving you with a clean, natural-looking nose without the obtrusive bump.
