What is Closed Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty?

Endonasal rhinoplasty, or closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure to reshape the nose. With the advanced ultrasonic energy technology, this rhinoplasty surgery uniquely combines the traditional closed approach, where all incisions are made inside the nostrils, and no external scars are left.

This approach offers the dual benefit of no visible scarring due to the closed method and ultrasonic technology’s enhanced precision and safety, making it a preferred choice for many rhinoplasty patients.

Who is a suitable candidate for Closed Rhinoplasty?

The ideal candidates for closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty are individuals who wish to modify the shape or size of their nose without significant alterations to the nasal tip or nostrils. This procedure is particularly suited for those requiring corrections primarily to the upper two-thirds of the nose, namely, the nasal bridge and bones.

Closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty may lead to quicker recovery times and less visible postoperative swelling as it involves less disruption to the nasal tissues. To be eligible for surgery, candidates must be healthy, nonsmokers, and have realistic expectations about the outcome.

Factors to Consider When Selecting Closed Rhinoplasty Method

When considering a closed nose job approach, several important factors should be taken into account:

scarring
Scarring
One of the main advantages of closed rhinoplasty is the absence of visible scarring, as all incisions are made inside the nose. If minimizing visible scarring is a significant concern, this might be a deciding factor. Each factor plays a role in choosing the most suitable rhinoplasty method for your needs. During your consultation, Dr. Zarrabi will take the time to discuss all these elements with you and advise on the best approach.
recovery and downtime
Recovery and Downtime
Closed rhinoplasty generally involves a shorter recovery period and less postoperative swelling than the open method. The closed method may suit you better if a quicker recovery time aligns better with your lifestyle and commitments.

Surgeon’s Expertise
Not all surgeons are equally experienced in open and closed rhinoplasty. Dr. Shahrouz Zarrabi, a Board Certified Maxillofacial Surgeon with substantial experience in both techniques, can recommend the most suitable approach based on his assessment of your nasal structure and desired outcomes.

Anatomical Considerations
The structural features of your nose, including the thickness of your skin and the current shape of your nasal bones and cartilage, will significantly influence the choice of the rhinoplasty method. Closed rhinoplasty is typically preferred when the alterations required are mainly focused on the upper two-thirds of the nose. 3D imaging can assist in visualizing these features more clearly, and help decide the best surgical approach.

Patient’s Goals and Desired Outcomes
Closed rhinoplasty is often suitable for individuals who require modifications to the bridge or sides of the nose or to rectify nasal hump and bumps on the nose. There may be better options for those needing extensive nasal tip or nostrils changes. Discussing your specific aesthetic goals with Dr. Zarrabi will help determine if the open or closed rhinoplasty is right for you.

Each factor plays a role in choosing the most suitable rhinoplasty method for your needs. During your consultation, Dr. Zarrabi will take the time to discuss all these elements with you and advise on the best approach.

Preparation for the Procedure

Once the decision to proceed with the surgery has been made, Dr. Zarrabi will discuss the anesthesia. We use general anesthesia to ensure the patient’s level of comfort. Dr. Zarrabi will also provide detailed pre-surgical instructions. These instructions usually include guidelines on eating, drinking, and smoking, managing current medications, and taking any new ones prescribed for the surgery. At Zarrabi MD, we aim to ensure optimal safety and effectiveness of the procedure. The patient might also be asked to arrange for someone to drive them home post-surgery and stay with them for the first night following the process.

The Closed Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Surgical Procedure

The closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty procedure is performed in a sequence of detailed steps:

Accessing the Nasal Structure

The surgery begins with Dr. Zarrabi making internal incisions within the nostrils, a technique known as the endonasal approach allowing access to the underlying nasal bones and cartilage structure without leaving any visible external scars.

Post-Procedure Recovery

Following the surgery, a nasal splint is typically used to support and protect the newly reshaped nasal structure. Due to reduced tissue trauma, recovery from a closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty is often quicker than traditional rhinoplasty, allowing most patients to return to regular activities within 1 to 2 weeks. Dr. Zarrabi will provide postoperative instructions to guide the patient through recovery, including keeping the head elevated, especially in the first few days after surgery, to help manage swelling, detailed guidelines on how to clean the nasal area, and advice on when to resume physical activities safely. As the nose continues to heal over the ensuing months, the final aesthetic results of the surgery will gradually become more apparent.

Precision with Ultrasonic Technology

One of the standout benefits of ultrasonic rhinoplasty is the precision it offers. The piezoelectric device used in this method emits high-frequency ultrasonic waves that can cut and reshape the nasal bones without causing damage to the surrounding soft tissues. This superior precision allows for more controlled and accurate nose surgery, reducing the risk of irregularities or asymmetries in the final result.

Less Trauma and Reduced Swelling

Ultrasonic technology minimizes the trauma to the nasal tissues during surgery. Traditional rhinoplasty methods can often lead to considerable bruising and swelling post-surgery due to the manual manipulation of the nasal bones. However, these side effects are significantly reduced with closed piezo preservation rhinoplasty, which makes for a more comfortable recovery period for the patient.

Quicker Recovery

Given the minimally invasive nature of the closed method, patients typically witness a faster recovery period. They’re likely to resume their usual activities earlier than they would following an open rhinoplasty procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions about closed rhinoplasty

Utilizing high-frequency ultrasonic energy, closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty accurately cuts and reforms the nasal bones. This approach ensures minimal impact on the surrounding soft tissues, making the procedure less invasive and precise. For the nasal tip, specialized suture and graft techniques enhance its shape and definition, ensuring the changes align harmoniously with the rest of the face. This holistic approach allows for a comprehensive transformation of the nasal structure, achieving the desired aesthetic and functional outcomes.
Depending on the complexity of the patient’s case, a closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty can take between 1.5 and 3 hours.
During recovery from a closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty, you can expect less swelling and bruising than the traditional rhinoplasty method. A nasal splint is typically applied post-surgery to help maintain the new shape of your nose. Most rhinoplasty patients can return to normal activities within 1 to 2 weeks, although the final form of the nose may not fully settle until up to a year after the procedure.
Closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty can address many types of nasal issues, from modifying the overall size and shape of the nose to refining specific areas such as the nasal tip and bridge. However, its ability to correct a deviated septum, which can cause breathing problems, may be more limited. In many cases, septoplasty, a specific procedure to correct a deviated septum, may be needed alone or in combination with rhinoplasty. The suitability of closed piezo preservation rhinoplasty for any particular case will depend on the individual patient’s nasal anatomy, the nature and severity of the issues to be addressed, and the surgeon’s expertise. It is, therefore, important to discuss this with your rhinoplasty surgeon during your consultation.
