More precision and less traumatism.
Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty or Piezotome® uses an advanced high precision ultrasound tool to sculpt the nose and change its shape. Sonic Rhinoplasty is less traumatic, its recovery is faster and swelling and bruising are minimal comparing to conventional rhinoplasty. Dr Marco Romeo was one of the first plastic surgeons is Spain offering this type of surgery to his patients.
Difference between Ultrasonic and Conventional Rhinoplasty
Just as Conventional Rhinoplasty, Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty or Piezotome® is also a surgical procedure to sculpt and change the nose shape. But what´s the main difference between Ultrasonic and Conventional Rhinoplasty? Conventional Rhinoplasty uses hammers and chisels to change the nose shape according to patient’s desire. Although this technique also delivers excellent results, it causes mechanical trauma which is associated with considerable swelling, bruising and bleeding. Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty allows a very accurate nose reshaping without affecting soft tissues. This technique involves a crystal that vibrates at an ultra-high frequency and is very gentle. Piezotome® sculpts the bone and cartilage in a very accurate way and when it touches soft tissues it only vibrates (does not cut) which means there is less damage and trauma. For this reason, swelling and bruising is minimal compared to hammers and chisels that cause significant damage to soft tissues.

Can Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty be performed in any type of nose?
Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty can be performed in any type of nose specially where hump reduction is desired. Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty is not indicated for tip reduction only as this does not involve bone and cartilage reshaping. In this case, conventional rhinoplasty is the best technique.
Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Results
Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty results are very satisfactory and evident. Right after surgery, you will notice changes. However, final results are expected after a few months (it can take from several weeks to a few months for swelling to disappear completely). It is very important to have realistic expectations and be aware that it is not possible to achieve an exact result that we consider ideal. Each person has a different bone structure and surgery goal is improving the nose initial characteristics.
Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Recovery
Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty postoperative recovery is faster than conventional rhinoplasty because it does not cause damage to the soft tissue surrounding the blood vessels and cartilages, so patients may return to their daily lives more quickly (after a week). Postoperative pain, swelling and bruising is typically less as well. However, Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty it is still a surgical procedure and it takes time for a complete recovery.
