Ultrasonic rhinoplasty or piezo rhinoplasty is the innovative technology available today for rhinoplasty patients. In this revolutionary technique, surgeons use a high-speed sound wave device to reshape the nasal bones in a gentler way than traditional rhinoplasty. 

The osteotomy (bone cutting) stage in the rhinoplasty procedure is the major cause of swelling and bruises on the face of the patient after surgery. There are various of equipment using in the osteotomy such as rasps, chisels, hammers, osteotomes/mallets, or powered instrumentation to cut and shape the nasal bone. Thanks to the ultrasonic rhinoplasty, the bones can be visualized and measured in millimeters during the operation and cut very precisely and in a very controlled way. 


Ultrasonic rhinoplasty candidates are patients who, like conventional rhinoplasty candidates, suffer from appearance or function of the shape or size of their noses.

The ultrasonic rhinoplasty has many practitioners in Europe and Turkey, and the device is approved by FDA in November 2017. Patients may undergo this procedure by choosing the destinations such as Istanbul, for more satisfying results and affordable cost.

If your general health does not interfere with surgery or anesthesia, and if the surgeon you find can use this new technique very effectively and successfully, ultrasonic rhinoplasty should be preferable because it provides a faster recovery.


Patients who will undergo ultrasonic rhinoplasty procedure should avoid taking aspirin and other blood-thinning medications as well as alcohol and smoking. They also need to notify their surgeons of any illnesses they have or medications they take.


In the ultrasonic rhinoplasty procedure, ultrasonic sound waves are used as the name suggests. The device has the ability to selectively and very precisely act on bones or hard cartilage, without injuring soft tissues: skin, mucosa, and flimsy cartilages, because a frequency of 25 to 29 kHz is utilized to cut bone, although a frequency greater than 50 kHz is necessary to cut neurovascular structures. Areas where chisel or rasp cannot reach through and even the tiny bulge can be corrected by using the ultrasonic device. Not only the appearance of the nose but also the breathing problems caused by cartilage or uneven bone can be also easily fixed by using this technique. After the procedure is finished, silicone tampons which is easier to breath with and does not hurt when removed can be used. 


Recovery is faster because this new technique does not damage the soft tissue surrounding blood vessels and cartilages, so patients can return to their daily lives more quickly. Postoperative pain is also typically less.


There are some surgical risks and complications related to ultrasonic rhinoplasty. Some of them are:

  • Anesthesia risks
  • Ecchymosis 
  • Bleeding 
  • Edema 
  • Scarring

Even though it is less than the conventional rhinoplasty procedure, there can be some side effects associated with ultrasonic rhinoplasty, such as:

  • Post-operative pain
  • Edema
  • Scarring
  • Bleeding

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty reviews show the satisfaction rates of this procedure as around 90%


According to the studies, there are considerable reduction of trauma, post-operative edema, and ecchymosis almost in all treated cases with ultrasonic rhinoplasty. The results of the clinical evaluations have supported the relationship between minor surgical trauma and better soft and hard tissue behavior during recovery.


What is Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty?

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty uses ultrasound technology to cut and shape the nasal bones and it results in less bleeding, less bruising, less swelling and a faster recovery.

Is Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Painful?

No pain is felt during the operation due to anesthesia. For the recovery period, postoperative pain is minimized compared to conventional rhinoplasty, as the instrument used in ultrasonic rhinoplasty does not damage soft tissues.

What Is the Difference Between Traditional Rhinoplasty and Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty?

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is different from a traditional rhinoplasty due to not only the device and technology it uses but also because the surgeon has to undermine the skin of the nose more extensively to fit the device.
