How it looks immediately after laser tonsillectomy under local anaesthetic spray


This is the right side tonsil bed after laser tonsillectomy under local anaesthetic spray. The majority of the tonsil has been vapourised away. The thin ring of white is the extent of thermal damage caused as heat is transmitted through tissue being vapourised. Usually around half a millimetre. No bleeding has occurred. Bleeding of any sort is very rare.
