What is Rosacea Nose Revision Surgery?

Rosacea on the nose is often observed in patients who have undergone multiple nose surgeries or in those who have experienced significant damage to the nasal skin during surgery. This condition can also occur in patients who have used hard silicone for an extended period or those who have placed the implant too close to the skin of the nose.

Possible Conditions for Rosacea Nose Revision Surgery

1. Long-term use of hard silicone.
2. Placement of the implant too close to the skin of the nose.
3. Laser surgery performed after a nose surgery to insert an implant.

The Connection between Calcification and Rosacea

An anion layer forms on the surface of the silicone, leading to the deposition of the cationic calcium component. The absorption of serum fat, albumin, and other substances promotes calcification. Consequently, the calcified membrane and silicone surface lose their original flexibility and harden. This process results in increased irritation of the skin on the nose, thinning of the skin, and a vicious cycle of redness.
