Of the cosmetic surgical interventions, nose surgery is one of the most difficult procedures to perform. Specialists estimate that approximately 10% -15% percent of primary rhinoplasty operations in Spain require revisions (secondary operations) for one reason or another. However, the new ultrasound technique could lower these estimates. Emerging Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty is a concept that promises a less invasive procedure with more accurate and natural-looking results.
What Is Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty?
Ultrasonic rhinoplasty uses sophisticated ultrasound instruments that were originally developed for cutting bones. in brain surgeries to prevent damage to brain tissue. With this new tool, the old chisels and hammers used to fracture bones are replaced by high precision instruments that reduce postoperative time.
In contrast to traditional techniques that involve ruptures or trauma to the original structure of the nose, ultrasonic rhinoplasty avoids possible complications such as unforeseen secondary fractures, irregularities or indentations. Instead of blindly breaking bones as we have been doing up to now, ultrasonic rhinoplasty allows us to sculpt through direct visual control.
Greater Precision And Shorter Postoperations
Among the benefits of ultrasonic rhinoplasty are that it achieves greater precision and results. In addition, the operation requires a shorter recovery time because there is less swelling, bruising and bruising than in traditional rhinoplasty.
Ultrasonic rhinoscopy is ideal for correcting asymmetries, bumps, and other irregularities, and can be particularly helpful when working with patients over 40, whose bones are often more fragile and brittle. Other patients in whom manipulation of the nose may affect their faculties, such as musicians, may also benefit from this advanced procedure.
However, that ultrasonic rhinoplasty does not eliminate the need for other techniques such as incisions, removal of excess cartilage, or grafts and sutures. The surgeon still bears great responsibility for the success of the process.
Only A Few Surgeons Use The Technology
At the moment, only a few surgeons are using ultrasound technology. Cost is one of the reasons surgeons are reluctant to use this technology. Unless a hospital already has it, the device is expensive, the disposable tips cost hundreds of euros each.
Another reluctance of plastic surgeons to embrace the new technique is a matter of necessity. “Some surgeons have been working with the same tools for decades, and the most talented are highly skilled with them, so they prefer to continue using familiar techniques.
In any case, ultrasonic rhinoplasty is one of the technologies we will hear about due to its benefits for patients and speedy recovery.…
