Candidacy for Piezo Rhinoplasty
Patients concerned about humps or bumps on the nasal bridge are often ideal candidates for piezo rhinoplasty. This procedure is also appropriate for patients who want to straighten a crooked nose.
Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure, so candidates must be in good overall health. It is also important that candidates have realistic goals and expectations for the procedure.
Adults of many ages can be good candidates for piezo rhinoplasty. However, rhinoplasty is not recommended for young patients whose nasal structure is still developing. Minors under the age of 16 are typically not able to undergo cosmetic rhinoplasty.
How Does Piezo Rhinoplasty Work?
Dr. Sanan uses an open rhinoplasty approach for piezo rhinoplasty. After anesthesia has been administered to the patient and has taken effect, Dr. Sanan will make an incision in the columella of the nose, which is the tissue that divides the nostrils.
This incision allows him to expose the internal nasal structure. Dr. Sanan can then alter nasal cartilage and tissue and use the piezo device to reshape the nasal bone as needed to accomplish the patient’s desired nose contours.
Unlike traditional rhinoplasty methods, which cause trauma to the soft tissues around the nasal bone, ultrasonic rhinoplasty only affects the targeted bone. As a result of preserving the nearby soft tissue, piezo rhinoplasty typically involves less post-op swelling, bruising, and discomfort than a traditional rhinoplasty.
How Long Does Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Take?
The duration of this procedure varies based on multiple factors. On average, piezo rhinoplasty takes between two to three hours.
The extent of the modifications and whether the surgery is performed in combination with an additional facial plastic surgery, such as a facelift, brow lift, or blepharoplasty. Dr. Sanan can provide an estimate of your total surgery time after he has created your treatment plan.
Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Recovery and Results
Piezo rhinoplasty can afford shorter recovery times than traditional rhinoplasty since there is less damage to the surrounding tissue. In most cases, bruising, swelling, and discomfort after this procedure will resolve within two or three weeks.
After this initial stage of your recovery, you will see your new nose contours. Subtle, ongoing improvements can continue over the next several months until the area has fully healed. However, most patients are able to resume their regular routine in less than a month.
How Much Does Piezo Rhinoplasty Cost?
The price of ultrasonic rhinoplasty is impacted by the extent of the surgery. Complex procedures that require longer surgery times are associated with higher costs. After Dr. Sanan formulates your personalized treatment plan, you will receive complete pricing details.
