Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is a cutting-edge approach to nose surgery that utilizes high-speed sound waves. Patients see incredible results with this groundbreaking technique.

What is ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is a procedure that employs soundwave technology. A device is used to emit high-frequency ultrasound energy waves to redefine the shape of the nasal bones and cartilage. This means that conventional surgical equipment such as chisels and rasps are not required. This makes for a more efficient procedure, as there is less swelling, bleeding, and scarring.

What’s more, this technique can be used either with open or closed rhinoplasty, both performed under general anesthesia. Ultrasonic rhinoplasty allows patients to achieve their goals while enduring less trauma to the surrounding tissues and skin. It is associated with minimal bruising and a short recovery period.

Another benefit of this ultrasonic technology is that it can achieve results that are much more precise than those of traditional instruments. This is due to the fact that all moves made by the surgeon are carefully controlled and monitored throughout the procedure.  Chisels and rasps are more challenging to use, as cuts are usually made blindly, leading to accidental fractures or splintering.

What are the benefits of ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

  • A more accurate and precise surgery
  • The surgery doesn’t require chisels or rasps
  • Less risk of complications
  • Decreased risk of trauma to the surrounding soft tissues, nerves, and skin

Who is a good candidate for ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

Virtually all patients unhappy with the size or projection of their noses stand to benefit from ultrasonic rhinoplasty. As with any surgical procedure, however, ideal candidates will be in good physical and mental health and free of any serious medical concerns that could lead to complications with the treatment.

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is able to address a number of issues in the nose, including asymmetry, a deviated septum, breathing issues, or issues with the nasal tip. It accomplishes these improvements without affecting the surrounding skin, making it a more pleasant procedure with less downtime.

What can I expect from recovery?

Following your ultrasonic rhinoplasty in Austin, bruising and swelling around the eye area are normal and to be expected in the first week. Beyond that, as there will be some temporary nasal congestion, patients will need to adjust to mouth breathing for a period of time. As with any surgical procedure, patients are likely to feel a bit fatigued for the first few days. Patients should get ample rest while remaining in an upright position, ensuring that the swelling goes down.

Generally speaking, preservation rhinoplasty is associated with a lighter, faster recovery process than that of traditional rhinoplasty. One week of complete rest is usually needed following the treatment. Patients should refrain from engaging in strenuous exercise for at least six weeks following the treatment. 

The final outcome of the procedure is usually evident by the 6-month mark following the procedure.
