What is Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty?

Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty, also known as Piezoelectric rhinoplasty, represents an advanced technique in facial plastic surgery. It utilizes ultrasonic technology, specifically high-frequency ultrasonic waves, to precisely modify the nose’s bone structures and cartilage while minimizing damage to soft tissues. This groundbreaking surgical technique differs significantly from traditional rhinoplasty methods, which often rely on chisels and mechanical trauma to reshape the nasal structure.

What are the Benefits of Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty?

More Precision

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty, performed by a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon or a Facial Plastic Surgeon, offers surgical precision in reshaping the nasal bridge and addressing issues like wide nasal bones, dorsal humps, or a crooked nose. The use of an ultrasonic device allows for contouring the nose pyramid with minimal trauma to surrounding tissue.

No Breaking Nasal Bones

Unlike traditional nose job techniques that often involve fracture lines and accidental fractures, ultrasonic rhinoplasty avoids additional trauma to the nasal bones.

Less Swelling

Due to its less invasive nature and minimal soft tissue damage, this type of nose reshaping results in minimal swelling and a comfortable recovery.

True Nose Sculpting

Ultrasonic technology facilitates precise cartilage adjustments and reshaping, allowing for a more aesthetic outcome tailored to each rhinoplasty patient’s unique facial harmony.

 Less Pain and Discomfort

Patients typically experience less discomfort during the initial healing period, owing to the reduced mechanical trauma.

Faster Healing

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty promises a quicker recovery period compared to conventional rhinoplasty, facilitating a quicker return to daily activities.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for an Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Procedure?

An ideal candidate for ultrasonic rhinoplasty procedures is someone seeking cosmetic or functional improvements to their nose, such as correcting nasal asymmetries or breathing issues. They should be in good overall health, have realistic expectations about the cosmetic outcome, and have undergone an initial consultation with a double board-certified surgeon.

Potential Risks and Complications of a Piezo Rhinoplasty

Like any surgical procedure, piezo rhinoplasty carries potential risks, including infection, bleeding, and adverse reactions to anesthesia. Specific to this method are risks related to the ultrasonic device, such as incomplete corrections or collateral damage to internal structures, albeit these are rare.

The most common risks associated with ultrasonic rhinoplasty include the following:

  • Infection, bleeding, scarring, and numbness in the nose;
  • Nerve damage which can lead to a condition known as neuropraxia, causing a loss of sensation or abnormal sensations in the nose;
  • Asymmetry of the nose, difficulty breathing, and migrating scar tissue;
  • In rare cases, the patient may experience an allergic reaction to the anesthesia or to the ultrasonic device used during the procedure;

Patients will have the opportunity to discuss all of the risks and potential complications with Dr. Saman before undergoing ultrasonic rhinoplasty. We make sure our patients walk into surgery with the right information and well prepared.

Choose great cosmetic results with Dr. Saman

The Piezotome device allows for greater control and accuracy in sculpting the nasal bones and cartilage, potentially resulting in more aesthetically pleasing outcomes. However, utrasonic rhinoplasty (Piezo rhinoplasty) is not for everyone, which is why consulting Dr. Saman and exploring the different options is a great starting point.

Other techniques may be better suited and create better results for different patients. A consultation with Dr. Saman (in his Manhattan office or virtually) is your best first step in starting your rhinoplasty journey.

How is an ultrasonic rhinoplasty performed?

An ultrasonic nose job involves making incisions to access the nasal structure. A plastic surgeon uses a piezo device to precisely sculpt the nose, addressing concerns like wide nose, nasal humps, or asymmetrical nose with ultrasonic energy. This method reduces the risk of unwanted fractures and promotes quicker healing.

What Goes On Before and After the Ultrasonic Surgical Procedure is Performed?

Before the surgery, a detailed consultation with a Facial Plastic Surgeon occurs, including medical evaluation and discussions about the desired outcome. Post-procedure, patients are advised to avoid strenuous activities and follow specific care instructions to ensure a smooth and quick recovery.

What is a Piezotome Rhinoplasty?

Piezotome rhinoplasty is a term synonymous with ultrasonic rhinoplasty. It employs a specialized instrument, the piezotome, which uses ultrasonic energy for precise bone and cartilage reshaping. This advanced technology offers a refined approach to both cosmetic and functional rhinoplasty.

What is the Recovery Time Following a Piezotome Nose Surgery?

The recovery time varies, usually spanning a few hours of outpatient procedure to a couple of weeks for the initial recovery. Complete recovery, revealing the final form and aesthetic of the nose, may take several months.

What is the Difference Between Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty and Traditional Rhinoplasty?

The primary difference lies in the surgical technique and instruments used. Traditional rhinoplasty often involves chisels and more invasive methods, causing more trauma and swelling. In contrast, ultrasonic rhinoplasty uses high-speed sound waves for a more refined and less invasive procedure, ensuring a quicker recovery and precise outcomes.

Is Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty More Expensive Than a Traditional Nose Job?

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty can be more expensive due to the advanced technologies and specialized training required. However, this cost may be offset by the benefits of a faster recovery and precise cosmetic results.

Can Piezo Rhinoplasty Surgery Address Breathing Concerns for Patients?

Yes, piezo rhinoplasty, or ultrasonic rhinoplasty, can address breathing concerns. By precisely reshaping the nasal structure, it can improve nasal airway function and address issues like nasal dryness or breathing problems due to structural abnormalities. This type of surgery, therefore, combines the benefits of cosmetic and functional rhinoplasty.
