PRACTICE POLICY UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19

An ultrasonic (or Piezo/Piezoelectric) rhinoplasty is a newer way to perform a nose surgery with even more precision and gentleness. This technique allows a surgeon to reshape certain bones in the nose without the need to cut or break.  

Houston rhinoplasty surgeon Dr. Michel Siegel, who is known for a gentle touch and for natural-looking results, performs ultrasonic rhinoplasty (in addition to traditional rhinoplasty).

Contact our office in Houston to book a consultation, or read on to find out more about ultrasonic (AKA Piezo) rhinoplasty.

What are the benefits of an ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty has been around for over 100 years, but the instruments – like scalpels and surgical chisels and rasps – have not changed much, until recently.

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty involves the use of tiny instruments, each with a different shape and function, like attachments on a vacuum.  These instruments reshape the bones by creating vibrations, through ultrasound technology.

This allows for gentler, more precise shaping and the ability to polish bones more incrementally.  The greater precision also causes even less swelling and bruising than many traditional rhinoplasties do.

When is ultrasonic rhinoplasty performed?

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty applies only to the bony part(s) of the nose. It is designed to correct a hump, a nose that is too wide or too strong, a deviated nasal septum, or a bony asymmetry.  The soft tissues of the nose will require traditional surgical shaping.

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is currently used on five continents, and many of the best rhinoplasty surgeons have also adopted this newer bone-reshaping techniques, for both cosmetic and functional rhinoplasty. The ultrasonic technique was developed in France around 2016, and it has been practiced in the US and elsewhere more recently, though by relatively few facial surgeons.
