How does ultrasonic rhinoplasty work?

The technique for ultrasonic rhinoplasty is a bit different from that of traditional rhinoplasty surgery. Instead of using hammers, chisels, and rasps, which create more damage are require more healing time, ultrasound, or focused sound waves, are used. Using an ultrasound wand that can be equipped with different tips, humps in the nose can be removed without damaging underlying tissue while allowing Dr. Shah to create a very precise nasal ridge. The end result is a more beautiful nose with far less trauma, less swelling, and almost no bruising.

How long is recovery after ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty surgery typically takes 2 – 3 hours to perform. Recovery after ultrasonic rhinoplasty is similar to traditional rhinoplasty. You will wear a nasal splint for a week. You still need to sleep with your head elevated and use ice packs to soothe discomfort. The difference with ultrasonic rhinoplasty is that your nose looks more presentable to the public sooner, and the long-term final result is enhanced at the one-year full healing mark.

ultrasonic rhinoplasty FAQ

Am I a candidate for ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

Anyone healthy enough for traditional rhinoplasty is a candidate for ultrasonic rhinoplasty. The investment in this procedure is offset by the reduced need for revision surgery in the future.

How does ultrasound work?

Ultrasonic devices use high-speed sound waves to create vibrations in tissue. These vibrations cause gentle breaking apart of tissue surfaces to remove surface irregularities and cut tissues, all while avoiding damage to underlying structures. In other words, it treats the areas that need treatment in a highly targeted and precise way, all while keeping damage to a minimum.
