Recovery is faster with the piezo technique. Because it does not damage the soft tissue surrounding blood vessels and cartilage. You can return to your daily life faster.
In the first week, you will notice significantly less bruising and swelling than in traditional rhinoplasty techniques. The nose will be covered with a splint to keep the nasal bone in position. It will be removed after the first week.
In the second week after surgery, swelling and bruising begin to fade. You may return to work and social activities at this stage. But avoid demanding activities for 3 to 6 weeks.
About a month after the surgery, you'll look and feel healed. After 2-3 months, you may still feel numbness at the tip of the nose. This is normal and gradually begins to fade. The swelling will go away over the next 6 months after the surgery. Seeing the final result of the surgery may take up to a year.
Piezo rhinoplasty has a success rate of 90%.
Piezo rhinoplasty is the technical name for ultrasonic rhinoplasty. The procedure uses ultrasonic energy to reshape the nasal bones. Compared to the traditional method that used a hammer and chisel.
Piezotome is the instrument used to generate ultrasonic energy (a frequency of 25 to 29 kHz) to cut and shape the nasal bones. It reduces bleeding, bruising, and swelling and gives faster recovery.
The piezo device for the rhinoplasty procedure is more precise when carving the bone. And doesn't damage the surrounding soft tissue like skin, mucosa, and flimsy cartilages.
The Piezotome device comes with different sculpting attachments used in the procedure.

What is the Ultrasonic/ Piezo Rhinoplasty Technique?
The Piezo rhinoplasty technique uses ultrasound technology to cut and shape the nasal bones. It causes less bleeding, less bruising, less swelling, and a faster recovery.
Is Piezo Rhinoplasty Painful?
No pain is felt during the operation due to anesthesia. Expect a faster recovery period compared to conventional rhinoplasty. Because the instrument used in ultrasonic rhinoplasty does not damage soft tissues.
What Is the Difference Between Traditional Rhinoplasty and Piezo Rhinoplasty?
Ultrasonic rhinoplasty uses a piezotome instrument that uses ultrasonic energy. This device has a higher precision in carving the bone, which causes minor damage to the surrounding soft tissue. But traditional rhinoplasty surgery uses a hammer and chisel; this causes more damage to the soft tissue.
Is Piezo Rhinoplasty Better?
It is a more gentle technique that gives the surgeon great precision to carve the nasal bone.
