Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty: What It Is and How It's Different

Do you want to change the shape of your nose without going under the knife? Here’s why you must try ultrasonic rhinoplasty at Biolite.

Your nose shape and size can have a significant impact on your overall appearance. Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is a popular plastic surgery procedure that aims to enhance the appearance of your nose. However, if you are terrified of going under the knife, we have some fantastic news. Unlike traditional rhinoplasty, which requires surgical incisions and the removal or reshaping of bone and cartilage, an innovative technique called ultrasonic rhinoplasty offers a less invasive and more precise approach.

What is an ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty, also known as piezoelectric rhinoplasty or diamond rhinoplasty, is a type of rhinoplasty that reshapes the nose using ultrasonic energy. Instead of using traditional surgical tools, the procedure involves the use of a specialized ultrasonic instrument to shape the nasal bones and cartilage. Less recovery time is needed following ultrasonic rhinoplasty than after conventional rhinoplasty because of the precise nature of the procedure. This makes it a desirable alternative for those who want to reshape or reduce the size of their nose but do not want a prolonged recovery period. Ultrasonic rhinoplasty can be used to:

  • Enhance the nose's contour
  • Narrow the nasal bridge with accuracy
  • Narrow the nasal bridge with accuracy
  • Remove a dorsal hump
  • Straighten a crooked nose
  • Reduce the size of a nose  
  • Reduce the nose's profile

How does ultrasonic rhinoplasty work?

A small incision is made in the nostril or the columella to access the nasal bones and cartilage during the surgery. The bone or cartilage is then broken into tiny, precise fragments that can be easily reshaped using an ultrasonic device that is placed into the incision. Due to the accuracy of ultrasonic radiation, more precise reshaping is possible without damaging the surrounding tissues. The pieces are smoothed out, and any extra tissue is removed once the appropriate shape has been achieved. The incision is then stitched up with removable thread.

What are the benefits of ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is an excellent alternative to surgical nose-reshaping procedures. Here are some common benefits of this cutting-edge procedure:

Precise results

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty allows more accurate and controlled shaping of the nose. The more precise sculpting of the nasal bones and cartilage made possible by ultrasonic energy can produce more aesthetically pleasing and natural-looking results.

Shorter recovery

Unlike traditional rhinoplasty which involves long recovery periods, you recover quickly after an ultrasonic rhinoplasty. The method enables a more cautious approach, requiring less bone and cartilage to be removed, which can minimize pain, swelling and bruising. This could lead to a shorter recovery period and less downtime overall. Additionally, you will experience less pain and discomfort after the procedure.

Corrects breathing problems

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty can be used to correct respiratory problems or functional concerns with the nose. The treatment can improve airflow and relieve symptoms like snoring or sleep apnea by redesigning the nasal airways. Moreover, it can be used to correct structural issues like a deviated septum or other breathing-related issues.

Are there any risks associated with ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

While ultrasonic rhinoplasty is an incredibly safe procedure, there are a few risks that you need to be aware of:

  • Bleeding
  • Hematoma (blood collection under the skin)
  • Seroma (fluid collection under the skin)
  • Infection
  • Nasal dryness
  • Scarring
  • Bones might not heal correctly
  • Rarely, tissue necrosis (tissue death)
