Piezo ultrasonic rhinoplasty prioritizes patient comfort, safety, and satisfaction, marking a new era in nose surgeries.

The decision to opt for an open or closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty is a complex one, tailored to each individual. This choice will be made by the surgeon in accordance with and taking into account the patient’s unique nasal anatomy, desired outcomes, specific goals, and a comprehensive assessment of the situation. It’s crucial to understand that this determination is based on a combination of expert knowledge, experience, and the patient’s best interests.

What is Piezo Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty?

Piezo ultrasonic rhinoplasty is an innovative surgical procedure used to reshape the structure of the nose. This method represents a significant evolution in rhinoplasty techniques, particularly when viewed alongside preservation rhinoplasty. This approach seeks to maintain as much of the original nasal bridge structure as possible.

This synergistic combination of the preservation philosophy and piezo technology can lead to a more natural-looking result and improved postoperative recovery.

Two kinds of Ultrasonic rhinoplasty

The technology behind piezo ultrasonic rhinoplasty involves a device that produces high-frequency ultrasonic waves. These waves are channeled through a special surgical instrument, allowing it to make exact cuts. There are two main types of ultrasonic rhinoplasty surgery: closed and open.

Group 330

Close Ultrasonic rhinoplasty

In closed ultrasonic rhinoplasty, all incisions are made inside the nostrils, making it a less invasive procedure with no visible scarring. The rhinoplasty surgeon can access and reshape the nasal bones using an ultrasonic device with high control and precision. This technique is generally suitable for cases where less extensive reshaping is required or when the primary alterations are needed on the bridge of the nose rather than the nasal tip.

Group 329

Open Ultrasonic rhinoplasty

On the other hand, open ultrasonic rhinoplasty involves an incision across the columella or the strip of skin separating the nostrils. This approach allows the surgeon a more direct view and broader access to the nasal structure, providing more control when extensive reshaping is required. While this procedure can result in a small scar on the underside of the nose, the enhanced visibility can lead to more precise results, particularly when complex alterations to both the nasal bones and tip are needed.

Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty BENEFITS

Mask group 7

Precision

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty offers a high level of precision. The technique employs a tool that emits high-frequency sound waves to modify the nasal bones, ensuring that the nearby soft tissues remain unaffected. This accuracy leads to safer surgeries with a reduced risk of uneven outcomes.

Mask group 8

Less Trauma

Using ultrasonic technology results in less damage to nasal tissues during surgery. Conventional nose job methods might cause notable bruising and swelling afterward because they manually adjust the nasal bones. But with piezo ultrasonic rhinoplasty technique, these issues are much less common, leading to an easier recovery time for the patient.

Mask group 9

Faster Recovery

Due to the less invasive approach of the ultrasonic method, patients often experience quicker healing times. This means they can get back to their regular routines sooner than if they had undergone a traditional rhinoplasty procedure.

Cost of Piezo ultrasonic rhinoplasty

As an advanced technique that uses specialized equipment, Piezo Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty may be more expensive than traditional rhinoplasty. Piezo Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty costs vary between $5,000 and $10,000, so you can expect the cost of a Piezo Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty to be in this range or higher.

It’s important to discuss the cost with your surgeon during your consultation. Ensure you understand the quoted price (e.g., surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, facility fees, post-surgery care) to avoid unexpected costs.

Step-by-Step Ultrasonic Piezo Rhinoplasty Procedure

Preoperative consultation and planning

During this phase, you will have one or more consultations with Dr. Zarrabi to discuss your aesthetic and functional goals for the surgery. He will thoroughly examine your nasal structure and overall health and may use 3D imaging technology to visualize the expected outcome.

Part of this consultation will involve planning the specifics of the surgery, including whether a closed or open ultrasonic rhinoplasty is more suitable for your case. Additionally, Dr. Zarrabi will discuss if suture and graft techniques will be needed. These techniques, used to refine and support the nasal structure, can be integral to achieving the best possible result. For instance, sutures could be utilized to alter the shape of your nasal tip for better definition, while grafts could be employed to add structure or volume to certain areas of your nose.

Frequently Asked Questions

The ideal candidate for a piezo ultrasonic nose job is an individual looking to reshape their nose for aesthetic enhancement or to rectify functional issues such as breathing difficulties.
In addition to having realistic expectations about the nose job outcome, potential candidates should be healthy and non-smokers. They should also have a fully developed nasal structure.

Piezo rhinoplasty offers several benefits. It’s less traumatic to the tissues, leading to minimal bruising and swelling, resulting in a quicker and more comfortable recovery.
The method also allows for extreme precision, yielding more predictable and natural-looking results. Since this technique can be performed using a closed approach, it leaves no visible external scars.

Recovery times for rhinoplasty depend on the patient and the complexity of the procedure. However, due to the less invasive nature of the ultrasonic method, recovery is generally quicker than with traditional rhinoplasty. It’s typical for most rhinoplasty patients to resume their usual activities around 1 to 2 weeks after the surgery, usually after removing the nasal splint. While swelling and bruising progressively diminish within the initial few weeks, the final and settled form of the nose may not be apparent until up to a year post-operation.

The ultrasonic method offers a significant advantage over traditional rhinoplasty techniques when dealing with nasal bones. Traditional nasal surgery, which often involves manually breaking the nasal bones with traditional rhinoplasty instruments – surgical chisel and hammer, can be imprecise and lead to more trauma for the surrounding soft tissue.
In contrast, the ultrasonic method uses high-frequency vibrations to precisely cut and reshape the bones, preserving the integrity of the surrounding soft tissues. This results in less bruising, less swelling, and decreased surgical bleeding, leading to a more controlled and predictable outcome.
