Closed Ultrasonic
Rhinoplasty

Closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty offered at Zarrabi MD, in the beautiful locale of Corona Del Mar, CA, redefines aesthetic and functional rhinoplasty standards. This innovative procedure leverages high-frequency ultrasonic vibrations to accurately reshape the nasal structure with minimal disruption to surrounding tissues. This means less bruising, less postoperative swelling, and a faster recovery time for nose surgeries than traditional rhinoplasty.

What is Open 
Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty?

In open ultrasonic rhinoplasty, an incision is made along the columella to give the surgeon better visibility and access to the nasal structure. Dr. Zarrabi, renowned for his facial cosmetic surgery expertise, then employs a specialized ultrasonic device to modify 
the nasal bones without breaking it. Using ultrasonic waves allows for a more controlled and accurate procedure, minimizing trauma to the surrounding tissues and reducing the risk of complications such as bleeding or infection. Dr. Zarrabi of Zarrabi MD can also perform closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty. This versatility in surgical options further establishes him 
as a leading expert in the field.

Unlike traditional rhinoplasty techniques, open ultrasonic rhinoplasty offers several distinct advantages. Conventional methods often involve more invasive traditional nose surgery instruments like chisels or hammers, which can result in more significant nasal trauma 
in the surrounding soft tissues and, consequently, more extended recovery periods. 
In contrast, the ultrasonic method is less invasive, allowing quicker recovery times 
and a reduced risk of complications. Additionally, the precision afforded by the ultrasonic device often results in more natural-looking and satisfying aesthetic outcomes.

Instrument used: Piezoelectric Device

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.

Unparalleled Precision

Using ultrasonic energy in open ultrasonic rhinoplasty is a game-changer regarding precision. Traditional methods often involve chisels or hammers, which can result in less accurate outcomes. Facial plastic surgeons can make exact modifications to the nasal bones with ultrasonic energy. This level of detail significantly reduces the likelihood of asymmetrical results, ensuring that both sides of the nose are in harmony with each other and the rest of the face.

Quicker Recovery

One of the standout benefits of open ultrasonic rhinoplasty is the quicker recovery time. The minimally invasive technique of the procedure, combined with the reduced trauma to surrounding tissues, allows for faster healing. Patients typically find themselves resuming their regular routines more quickly compared to those who opt for conventional rhinoplasty methods, making this a particularly advantageous choice for individuals with hectic schedules.

Reduced Trauma

Traditional rhinoplasty methods can be pretty invasive, leading to significant trauma to the surrounding nasal tissues. Open ultrasonic rhinoplasty, on the other hand, minimizes this trauma. The result is less postoperative discomfort, including reduced bruising and swelling, making the overall recovery process more comfortable for the patient.

Natural-Looking Outcomes

The high level of control the ultrasonic device provides allows for more natural-looking outcomes. The ability to make minute adjustments to the nasal bones means that the results are often more aesthetically pleasing, blending seamlessly with the patient’s facial features. This leads to higher levels of patient confidence and satisfaction post-surgery.
scarring

Less Scarring

One of the less-discussed but equally important benefits of open ultrasonic rhinoplasty is reduced scarring. Because the procedure is less traumatic and more precise, there is often less internal and external scarring, which is particularly beneficial for patients concerned about the aesthetic aspects of scarring post-surgery.
