Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty in Turkey

Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty is a Rhinoplasty method that is also referred to as ”Piezo Rhinoplasty“ or ”Open Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty.” Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty is a technological method that is intervened in a more controlled way by stretching bone and cartilage with ultrasonic sound waves instead of the classic bone-breaking method. Piezo is also the name of the device in which ultrasonic sound waves are given.

Technological progress, which is spreading rapidly to all areas of life, also positively affects developments in the field of health. Especially after some surgeries, there is less pain, fewer complications, and an increase in the quality of life along with the recovery time increases related to these new developments in the field of health.

As with many operations, methods are preferred in nose aesthetic surgeries in which pain, bruising, and swelling will be less due to the difficult post-operative process. One of these methods is “Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty”, which is performed with the “Piezo Method”, which provides easy and pinpoint cuts using ultrasonic waves.

With Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty, the nasal bones are seen, and the nose is shaped and controlled by making incisions with millimeter measurements. In ultrasonic rhinoplasty operations, a desired, elegant, and natural nose emerges by targeting the bones and cutting them more controllably.

The main advantage of Ultrasonic rhinoplasty with piezo is that it does not damage the capillaries between the nasal bones, the surrounding soft tissues, and only the bone to be intervened is Decapitated. In this way, swelling and bruising in the nose are ensured to be minimal.

Who is Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty with Piezo Method Applied?

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is an operation performed on patients with disfigurement or dysfunction of the nose, aimed at correcting the shape of the nose or a breathing problem.

The piezo method is also used in rhinoplasty operations to shape the nasal bone of the nose and to remove tumors seen in the facial bone, as it basically works for bone.

The most important element in nose surgeries is to intervene in the bone in the desired way and to give the desired shape. At this point, the biggest advantage of ultrasonic rhinoplasty is that it does not damage the muscles, nerves, cartilage, mucous membranes, and soft tissues located around the bone while doing.

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty performed with the piezo method both shortens the operation time by accelerating bone fracture and allows the doctor to give the nose the desired shape.

Is Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty with Piezo Used in Open and Closed Surgeries?

It is not very easy to use the “Piezo Method” in closed surgeries. A distance is required to use the piezo device. To adjust this distance, it is also preferable to use it in the open technique. It is also possible to use Piezo in the closed method, but it is not valid for every process.

How long does ultrasonic rhinoplasty with the piezo method last?

An average rhinoplasty operation takes between 2 and 4 hours. However, it varies depending on the surgeon and the difficulty of the nose structure. Piezo reduces the time of 10-15 minutes in these surgeries. In addition, the fact that Piezo only cuts bone tissues and provides controlled bone stretching is the most important reason why surgeons prefer it.

Chisels such as hammer and gouge, used in rhinoplasty operations performed before the piezo method, could cause unwanted cracks in the bone and fractures in unwanted areas when they were hit on the bone from the outside.

Thanks to piezo, the surgeon creates a very straight and clean incision line where he touches, performs the desired intervention, and makes a positive contribution to the healing process of the bone.

Are there any risks of ultrasonic rhinoplasty with the piezo method?

There are no special risks associated with the piezo method. When the right and experienced physicians use piezo, the risk is almost minimal. It should be remembered here that the most important thing that determines the success of the operation is the experience level of the surgeon.   Piezo is just a tool that facilitates the work in this regard; it is a piece of equipment.
