Many people struggle to truly feel confident in their facial appearance when they have misshapen, disproportionate, or maybe even an injured nose that distracts from the natural harmony of the rest of their features. Usually, for adults with fully developed noses, the recommended procedure is rhinoplasty, a completely customizable surgical approach to shape the nose in all desired ways to not only improve shape and size but also breathing ability.

However, for those who are wary or not the best candidates for rhinoplasty, Dr. Diktaban is proud to offer the latest innovation in reshaping the nose, VAPOR Nose®. Here’s what this procedure can offer you and why it might be suited for your unique nasal shape concerns.

What is VAPOR Nose?

VAPOR Nose stands for “Vaporized Assisted Profile Option Reduction,” which is a way to eliminate an unwanted nasal hump. VAPOR Nose uses radiofrequency energy to instantaneously vaporize tissue that contributes to this dorsal hump, leading to consistent, safe, and natural-looking results for noses of all shapes and sizes.

VAPOR Nose still requires seven to ten days of downtime and is specifically used to eliminate bumps or humps that a person dislikes on their nose. It’s not as comprehensive as a full rhinoplasty surgery, although it has its benefits for well-qualified candidates.

Benefits of VAPOR Nose

As part of Dr. Diktaban’s rhinoplasty approach to avoid visible scarring as often as possible, the biggest benefit of VAPOR Nose hump reduction is that there are no knives or scissors required to perform this technique. The unique radiofrequency device is inserted into your nose in a precise manner that only affects nasal cartilage, not other tissues. This leads to a process that is very incremental and therefore consistent from patient to patient, which also prevents nearly any chance of “over-doing” the procedure, resulting in a collapsed-looking nose.

Additional benefits include that recovery is usually easier than traditional rhinoplasty procedures, however, your specific surgical plan may still require downtime between seven and ten days before resuming strenuous activities.

VAPOR Nose can be used on practically anyone who has minimal issues with their nose shape beyond a dorsal hump, allowing people of all ages and ethnicities to achieve conservative yet noticeable results that enhance their overall facial appearance.

Finally, there’s no risk of affecting your breathing ability or the structure of your sinuses during VAPOR Nose. The precision of the radiofrequency device allows Dr. Diktaban to exclusively target the problem area without residual effects on other types of tissue.
