Piezo Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Frequently Asked Questions!

Is Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Safe?

Yes, it is quite safe and is usually done with a closed approach. This means making a small incision inside the nose to avoid any scarring on the outside. This is quite different from traditional open rhinoplasty, which leaves a visible incision under the nose.

Traditionally, surgeons use chisels or rasps to reduce nasal protrusions, but these cause mechanical trauma. This advanced technique, on the other hand, uses an abrasive crystal that vibrates at an ultra-high frequency. The equipment shapes bone and cartilage but does not manipulate soft tissue.

This means patients will experience almost no bleeding or bruising during surgery. Mini ultrasonic rhinoplasty gives plastic surgeons more control over their work. It also offers patients more predictable results and significantly reduces post-operative pain and bruising.

How Long Does Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Take to Heal?

Mini ultrasonic rhinoplasty does not take as long to heal as traditional rhinoplasty, which requires 2 weeks of recovery. Most patients can return to work within a week. Patients also experience minimal bleeding and bruising after surgery.

Is Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Better?

Unlike traditional techniques, ultrasonic rhinoplasty only shapes the bones and cartilages inside the nose. It does not alter or manipulate tissue. This means patients experience less swelling after treatment. The ultrasonic rhinoplasty device also provides greater surgical precision with better results than traditional nose surgeries.

For other people, ultrasonic rhinoplasty is not a satisfactory procedure. For example, if the patient wants to reduce the size of the nostrils, ultrasonic rhinoplasty will not produce the desired results. It does not change skin texture.

Can Septum Deviation be Corrected?

Yes, just like regular nose surgery, mini ultrasonic rhinoplasty can correct septal deviation. It can also correct nasal asymmetry, dorsal humps, and wider nasal bridges.

Who Can Be a Candidate for Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty?

The ideal ultrasonic rhinoplasty candidate is someone who is unhappy with the size and shape of their nose. If they have a back hump, severe asymmetry, or a wide nasal bridge, they may benefit from ultrasonic rhinoplasty.
