Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty, also known as “nose surgery”, is one the most demanded surgeries. Rhinoplasty enhances facial harmony and the proportions of your nose. It can also correct your respiratory problems caused by structural defects in the nose.
In traditional rhinoplasty, surgical instruments known as rasps and osteotomes (hammer and chisel) are used to reshape the nasal bones by removing the hump and/or narrowing the nasal bone. These tools are relatively imprecise and there use can lead to contour irregularities. The most important development for rhinoplasty in recent years has been the Ultrasonic Piezo Rhinoplasty device; it is the only device FDA approved exclusively for rhinoplasty. A revolutionary procedure that shapes the bone with an energy created by ultrasound. With the Piezo technique I can remove the hump, make precise bone cuts that don’t damage the underlying mucosa, and polish any rough surfaces to create a precisely shape nasal bridge. The ultrasound wand can be used with different tips so you can work without damaging the skin and the cartilage.

Rhinoplasty surgery performed with Piezo device, the bone is healing 60% faster than the traditional method. This results in far less trauma, less swelling and almost no bruising which is very important to me as a plastic and aesthetic surgeon. Piezo technique is not the last invention in rhinoplasty, but it is a method that has taken its place in the field of plastic surgery as an important technological advance that provides more accuracy and superiority in shaping the nasal bone.

What to expect after Piezo Rhinoplasty?

One of the most frequently asked questions by my patients before surgery is whether the tampon placed in the nose after surgery will prevent breathing. For this concern, we are using a very comfortable leaf-shaped silicone tampons without blocking the airway and at the same time, a comfortable feeling is provided. During the removing process of the tampons, the patient feels minimum or no pain, contrary to the general belief.

Another important point for the patients is when they can go back to work and return to their daily routine. The patient spends the night at the hospital after the surgery and the tampons are removed after 5 to 7 days. We also advise some patients to massage carefully their nose bridge after 3 weeks.

Some patients may also be advised massaging after 3 weeks. The patients should not swim for 2 months. We advise that the patient does not wear (sun) glasses for 6 months.

During the recovery period, we recommend that you watch out for any traumatic injury on the nose. Developing technologies have facilitated rhinoplasty, operations for the surgeons and also increased the comfort of the patients.
