What is an Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty?
Ultrasonic rhinoplasty, also known as piezo rhinoplasty or diamond rhinoplasty, is the latest development in cosmetic nose surgery. Traditional rhinoplasty surgery uses rasps, hammers, and surgical chisels to lower the dorsal hump and narrow the nasal bones, whereas the ultrasonic rhinoplasty uses an ultrasonic instrument to reshape the bones.
The specially engineered tool used in ultrasonic rhinoplasty works by using micro-vibrations created through piezoelectric crystals and transmitted to the tip of the instrument. Piezo Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is typically performed with open technique for better exposure of the nasal bones.
The device works on bones and hard cartilage, without interfering with the surrounding soft tissues, including the skin, mucosa, and upper and lower cartilages. Therefore, ultrasonic rhinoplasty results in less bruising and swelling compared to the other rhinoplasty procedures. Also, ultrasonic rhinoplasty has less risk of bleeding, as this device doesn’t damage the surrounding blood vessels as much as traditional nose jobs.
Today, many clinics and hospitals only perform traditional rhinoplasty, since piezo rhinoplasty is still a relatively new treatment, and yet ClinicExpert is one of the few hospitals which offer ultrasonic rhinoplasty in Turkey. If you consider having a serious surgical operation like rhinoplasty, you need to make sure you are working with the right team. You cannot entrust yourself to someone with less than 10 years of experience. As ClinicExpert, we use the best and most up-to-date techniques, devices and equipment for our patients, thanks to our over 12 years of experience.

Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Overview

|Side effects||Soreness, bruising, bleeding|
Benefits of Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty? How Does It Differ?
- It reduces soft tissue trauma, and thereby post-operative bruising and swelling are quite rare.
- Thanks to advanced shaping and filing techniques, a natural shape can be given to the nasal bone.
- A smoother transition is achieved from the bridge of the nose to the tip of the nose for a whole result.
- Since ultrasonic rhinoplasty is able to prevent uncontrolled bone fractures during the procedure, the deformity and contour irregularities are also prevented.
- Recovery is faster as the soft tissue surrounding blood vessels and cartilage are not damaged. Patients can return to their daily lives very quickly. Post-operative pain is typically less than traditional rhinoplasty.
- Ultrasonic rhinoplasty surgery increases patient satisfaction.
- The use of the technique reduces complication rates after the procedure and the need for revision surgery.
As a result, piezo rhinoplasty is very advantageous compared to the traditional method. In addition to providing convenience to surgeons at the point of providing the desired appearance, it increases patient comfort.
ClinicExpert’s surgeons are some of the first surgeons to use the device in Turkey. Our surgeons have performed more than 10000 nose surgeries by fully combining their own developed rhinoplasty technique with a piezo ultrasonic bone shaping device. For information and appointments, you can call or message us via WhatsApp.
Candidates for Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty
Anyone who is a good candidate for a nose job can also be considered a candidate for an ultrasonic rhinoplasty. The best candidates are those that are in good physical and mental health with no chronic medical conditions and have nasal bumps or humps on the bridge of the nose. Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is not recommended for those under the age of 18.
If your surgeon decides that you are a suitable candidate for piezo rhinoplasty you need to follow some instructions. If you are a smoker you will be asked to stop smoking at least 2 weeks prior to the procedure. Smoking can negatively affect the healing process by slowing down wound healing.

If you want to recover as quickly as possible after your surgery, here we have some advices for you during the healing process:

- Stay hydrated – drink at least 2 liters of water per day. It would surprise you if you know how much it can help to reduce any post-operative swelling
- Don’t miss your follow up appointments
- Take pain relief medication you’re prescribed at the clinic
- Use ice packs and cold compresses to reduce any swelling
- Keep the inside of your nose moist and clean with saline spray
