For most people, there is nothing wrong with naturally occurring bumps on the nose. However, others may feel self-conscious about the bone irregularities appearing on the nose and prefer Ultrasonic rhinoplasty to correct the appearance. Sometimes, dorsal humps cause nasal swelling, pain in the nostril, and redness in or around the nose. 

In this article, we review essential facts about ultrasonic rhinoplasty. Whether you are planning to undergo cosmetic rhinoplasty or looking for general knowledge, keep reading to find out more. 

Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Meaning 

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is a nose reshaping cosmetic procedure that gives the patient a natural and balanced look.

A poorly proportioned or crooked nose can ruin your appearance, causing low self-esteem. To achieve facial harmony, people choose ultrasonic rhinoplasty

Who Can Have Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty?

You are a good candidate for the cosmetic procedure if you experience or can relate to either of these feelings:

  • A nose that is too wide or too narrow

  • The nose is twisted or too narrow

  • Dorsal hump  a bump at the nose bridge

  • Want to correct damage or an injury on your nose 

  • You snore loudly or experience sleep apnoea and nasal airway problems, causing breathing issues

However, to undergo the procedure, you must be in good mental or physical health and are above 18 years. Finally, you must have realistic expectations about ultrasonic rhinoplasty before and after. 

Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Treatment Duration

The procedure takes between 1 and 4 hours to complete depending on your condition. The doctor uses specialized rhinoplasty tools to reshape the nasal bones and ensure a more refined nose shape. During the procedure, the doctor will apply general anesthesia before making an open technique to expose your nasal bone better. 

Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Side Effects & Risks

As with many surgical procedures, you may experience side effects that clear up within a few days. Some common nose job side effects include:

  • Swelling
  • Bruising,
  • Pain and other temporary side effects depend on your body. 
  • Nerve damage
  • Nose bleeding.

Other patients experience visible scarring with open rhinoplasties on the nose between the nostrils. Other side effects include nerve damage and nose bleeding.  

Cosmetic Rhinoplasty Recovery Time

Regarding recovery time, it depends on the rhinoplasty procedure. For open and closed procedures, expect a downtime of one-to-two weeks. Most patients report a rapid recovery time of five to six days. 

After a week, you could be able to remove the splint from your nose and go out in public without the bruising signs. 

While the initial recovery is generally quick, skin healing may continue for an extended period. Some patients might experience a slower healing process because the skin has to shrink to the new underlying framework. 

Nose Job Surgery Success Rate

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty has a success rate of between 85% - 90%. The success rate is higher if it is performed by a certified and experienced plastic surgeon. Experienced surgeons understand the myriad pitfalls that could lead to potential complications. 

Nose Reshaping Surgery Alternative Treatments

The common alternative for nose reshaping surgery is non-surgical rhinoplasty. The non-surgical rhinoplasty utilizes dermal fillers to make minor to moderate nose changes without needing surgery. 

The injectable approach takes about 15 minutes, and patients can return to work without taking days off. However, the filler procedure provides temporal results.

How Is The Procedure Performed?

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is an outpatient surgical procedure, so patients may leave the hospital the same day after the anesthetic has worn off.

The ultrasonic rhinoplasty involves opening the skin on the nose and exposing the nasal bone and the cartilage. The doctors use ultrasonic energy to reshape the bone. Ultrasonic energy is a precise technology that allows doctors to achieve more accurate nasal bone contouring.

Only the bone absorbs the ultrasonic energy, so there is no damage to the surrounding tissue, the cartilage, blood vessels, or the mucosal lining. 

What Does Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Involve?

Rhinoplasty is a safe and comfortable procedure with minimal complications and a 90% success rate. During the procedure, the surgeon administers local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure. 

Once the anesthesia sets in, the surgeon proceeds and makes an incision on the nasal skin, separating the nasal structure. 

In the case of closed rhinoplasty, the surgeon uses the nostrils as the entry points to correct the underlying nasal structures that consist of the bone and cartilage. 

However, for an open rhinoplasty, the surgeon cuts the columella and proceeds to make necessary changes. Once the nasal structure is changed, the surgeon sutures the incisions and applies a stent to stabilize the nose surgery. 

Finally, the surgeon wraps the area using bandages and advises the patient on what to expect during recovery. 

What Should I Expect After Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Treatment?

Like other plastic surgery procedures, ultrasonic rhinoplasty patients can expect swelling, bruising, and mild pain following the procedure. Visible scarring is also likely and often occurs on the base of the nose between the nostrils. Some patients also report numbness, nerve damage, blood vessel damage, and nose bleeding. 

Things You Should Avoid Before Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Procedure

While preparing for the ultrasonic rhinoplasty procedure, avoid:

  • Aspirin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications.  
  • Vitamin E
  • Herbal supplements
  • Smoking at least two weeks before and after the surgery

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    I highly recommended flymedi.com. Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
