What do you think about Rhinoplasty using laser?

I recently heard about rhinoplasty using laser. What is the difference between conventional and laser nose surgery? is it applicable for septoplasty as well? and what about the healing process ( less bruises and swelling?) and the results using laser in comparison with the normal process? is it worth it? Thank you!

Rhinoplasty by Laser

Hi MikyFr,The advantage of laser is tp minimize the bleeding caused by small blood vessels, however, it will not work for bigger vessels, and it will never substitute cold-knife for skin incision. Laser will however be beneficial for subcutaneous and soft tissue resection, thus helping minimize bruising, but a meticulous conventional technique can also do the same.
