FaQ – Ultrasonic (Piezo) Rhinoplasty

How does ultrasonic rhinoplasty differ from traditional rhinoplasty?

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty differs from traditional rhinoplasty primarily in the tools and techniques used. While traditional rhinoplasty often involves manually reshaping the nasal bones with chisels and hammers, ultrasonic rhinoplasty uses ultrasonic energy to precisely sculpt the bones. This results in less trauma to surrounding tissues, leading to reduced bruising and swelling and a more controlled reshaping process.

Is ultrasonic rhinoplasty a better option than traditional rhinoplasty?

Whether ultrasonic rhinoplasty is a better option depends on the individual patient’s needs and goals. It offers significant advantages in terms of precision and recovery, making it an excellent choice for patients requiring changes to the nasal bones. However, the best approach should be determined in consultation with a qualified surgeon who can assess the specific requirements and expectations of the patient.

What are the limitations of ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

While ultrasonic rhinoplasty is highly effective for bone work, it may not be the sole technique used in cases where extensive soft tissue manipulation or cartilage work is needed. In such scenarios, it may be combined with traditional techniques to achieve the desired outcome. Additionally, as a relatively new technique, it requires a surgeon skilled in the specific use of ultrasonic tools.
