How to Reduce Thick Skin on Nose?

How To Make Thinner The Thick Skin? - Recommendations After Ethnic Nose Aesthetics


Thick skin features are genetic, and modification of genetic characteristics in a person is quite inadequate in today's technology. Although many different suggestions and techniques such as surgical techniques, medical drug applications, mechanical massage, nutritional changes, long-term nasal taping have been defined; many of them have limited impact.

Can nose skin be thinned surgically in patients with thick skin characteristics?

Open technique - bilevel skin dissection and removal of underskin tissue 

In patients with thick skin characteristics, different techniques may be required according to thin-skinned patients. Especially the use of open technique and surgical removal of the subcutaneous tissue at the tip of the nose with two-level dissection can make the skin thinner during surgery, and at the same time, this subcutaneous tissue can be used as a natural filling material to the nasal root in patients with depressed nasal roots. Please note the following information here: after the surgical removal of the subcutaneous tissue, it is possible that the wound healing process will begin and then this tissue will reappear. Especially in patients who pay attention to other precursors, patients who use drugs that reduce the activity of fibroblast cells and who have nose prick during sleep time, the skin becoming thicker during this healing process can be reduced!

In the 4 photos above, there is a before and after view of the patient who underwent nasal tip plasty operation with limited nasal hump reduction. Open technique was used during the procedure and subcutaneous tissue was removed with bilevel section. During the surgery, the corners of the cartilages under the skin reflect the light very well at the tip of the nose. During the healing process, it is planned to apply the suggestions I shared with you at the end of this link in order to prevent the abnormal thickening of the skin and the nose tip appearance in the form of a rough round ball and to prevent the exaggerated camouflage effect.

Steroid injection after rhinoplasty

In patients with very thick skin features, and especially in patients who are planned for revision rhinoplasty or complicated rhinoplasty, it may be planned to inject cortisone-containing medication under the nasal skin after surgery. I usually plan cortisone injection into the nose for my patients 3-4 months after the operation, especially in order not to affect the wound healing negatively. Generally, the effect of local cortisone succeeds within 10-14 days and continues for a few months. Repeated application can be made every few months.

Postrhinoplasty taping in sleeping time for few months

I usually recommend placing a nose bandage for a few weeks after a rhinoplasty operation. I usually renew the nose bandage every 1 week and apply the classic nose bandage for the first 2-3 weeks.After the nose bandage is completely removed, the nasal skin is cleaned with natural saline water before sleep in patients with nasal skin oil and very thick subcutaneous tissue (ocean water spray can be used. ) and I recommend applying a horizontal nasal patch before going to sleep. In fact, although it is applied only during sleep, pressure on the tip of the nose from below and from the front during the night may contribute to the early elimination of the edema of the skin at the tip of the nose or to reduce the edema that may occur. 

How can you do bedtime nasal taping?

Generally, I recommend using hypoallergenic brown, micropore-containing 3M paper tape to attach one u-shaped and several horizontal nasal strips from bottom to top. When looking at the mirror, it may be appropriate to attach a horizontal band to apply pressure to that area, which is more edematous from the side. While the horizontal nose band is attached, it may be appropriate to apply a wide band that reaches the cheeks.

Bromelain, green tea, quercetin, arnica montana flower extract ...

The use of various herbal ingredients may be beneficial for accelerating postoperative recovery and not producing exaggerated healing tissue. Although it is adorable, there are many clinics that recommend the use of these products before and after the rhinoplasty operation. I generally recommend the use of these products, especially in the first 15 days after surgery. In patients with very thick skin characteristics, it may be appropriate to use bromelain-containing tablets for several months.

Local skin products containing vitamin A derivatives

Local skin products, especially used in the treatment of acne and containing retinoid derivative, which has the drying effects of the tongue and reduces the volume of fat cells, can be used after a few months after surgery. Because of the possibility of negative effects on healing, I have never had any patients using it in the early period. It's a controversial issue. It is enough to pay attention to the recommendations of the physician operating you.

Salt restriction

Especially in patients with very thick skin features, salt restriction in the diet for 2-4 months after surgery may be beneficial.

Skin thinning with laser

Laser beams can be used in many different areas. Especially making capillary vessels on the skin invisible, increasing skin nutrition, removing spots ... However, you should not be too hopeful about thinning the skin with laser. Keep in mind that side effects such as skin burns and negative impact on recovery in the surgery area may occur.

Pay close attention to activities that may cause edema in the nose after the operation!

In patients with thick skin characteristics, it is necessary to avoid long-term exposure to sunlight, not to go to the sauna, not to enter the solarium for skin tanning, and to avoid heavy exercise in hot environments after aesthetic nose surgeries.

Sometimes you may have to wait 2.5 years to see the result!

Note that in patients with thick skin features, it is sometimes necessary to wait 2-2 and a half years for complete recovery after rhinoplasty operation.

"Dreaming" away from reality in patients with very thick skin

Steroid injection after rhinoplasty,sleeping time taping,how to reduce thick skin on nose,

Sometimes I see that patients with very thick skin characteristics send photos showing very thin and angular nose shapes in messages sent via my e-mail and whatsapp. Expecting to obtain thin-skinned nose shapes, which are far from scientific and almost impossible to obtain, with angular light reflections at the tip of the nose, and thinking that the rhinoplasty operation, which includes photo animations and living tissue change, is the same may cause serious disappointments.
