Excellence in Rhinoplasty

Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty in Newport Beach, CA

Piezo rhinoplasty is a state-of-the-art surgical technique that uses ultrasonic waves to reshape the nasal bones. Unlike traditional rhinoplasty methods that rely on chisels and hammers, the device gently sculpts, reducing trauma and improving accuracy. This advanced approach minimizes bruising, swelling, and recovery time, so you can enjoy your results sooner.

Schedule your consultation today to learn more about how this cutting-edge technique can help you achieve a more refined and natural-looking nose.

The Benefits of Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty

Piezo rhinoplasty improves on conventional techniques in several ways.

  • The ultrasonic device offers exceptional control, allowing Ali Sajjadian to precisely adjust the nasal structure without damaging surrounding tissues.
  • The piezo approach significantly reduces postoperative bruising and swelling by minimizing trauma, leading to a quicker and more comfortable recovery.
  • More accurate sculpting results in a naturally refined nasal appearance.
  • The ultrasonic waves selectively target bone, reducing the risk of complications by preserving the integrity of soft tissues and blood vessels.

The Piezo Rhinoplasty Procedure

You’ll begin with a comprehensive consultation with Dr. Sajjadian. During this appointment, Dr. Sajjadian will listen to your concerns, evaluate your nasal structure, and discuss your aesthetic goals. He will explain the surgery in detail, answer all your questions, and develop a personalized surgical plan based on your facial anatomy. You’ll have a chance to view before-and-after photos of previous patients to understand your potential results.

Before your rhinoplasty surgery, we will give you directions to ensure a smooth and successful procedure. These may include guidelines on medications, diet, and lifestyle adjustments. Please follow them carefully to optimize your surgical outcomes and minimize potential risks.

On the day of the surgery, we administer anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Dr. Sajjadian will discuss your options with you during your consultation and determine the best approach based on your needs, preferences, and medical history.

Surgical Technique

Ultrasonic rhinoplasty involves the following steps.

Sajjadian typically uses a closed approach, where incisions are inside the nostrils, leaving no visible scarring. In some cases, an open approach may be necessary, with a small incision made across the columella (the thin strip of tissue between the nostrils).

Sajjadian gently reshapes the nasal bones with ultrasonic waves. The device emits high-frequency vibrations that selectively target bone tissue, allowing for precise sculpting without damaging surrounding structures.

In addition to bone reshaping, Dr. Sajjadian may also modify your cartilage to create the ideal contour, trimming or repositioning to enhance the nasal tip or bridge.

Once he achieves the desired shape and size, Dr. Sajjadian refines the nasal structure and carefully closes the incisions with sutures.

Our team will closely monitor you in a recovery area after surgery until you are stable enough to go home. Dr. Sajjadian will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions, including guidelines on medications, activity restrictions, and follow-up appointments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ideal candidates share the following characteristics:

Healing from ultrasonic rhinoplasty is typically quicker and more comfortable than conventional nose surgery. Though every patient recovers at a different rate, here is a general timeline.

  • First week: Initial swelling and bruising will subside significantly. You may experience some discomfort, which you can manage with prescribed pain medications.
  • Second week: Swelling continues to decrease, and you can resume light activities. Most patients feel comfortable returning to work and social obligations at this stage.
  • First month: Swelling and bruising are minimal. You can gradually resume more strenuous activities, always following Dr. Sajjadian’s postoperative care instructions to ensure optimal healing.
  • Three to six months: At this stage, you’ll see most of your results. However, it may take up to a year for all swelling to fully subside and for the nose to settle into its final shape.
