The Piezo Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty technique is a significant advance in custom nose surgery. After years of development and testing in Europe, Piezo-powered Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty is now available in New York City.

Dr. Pearlman is one of the first surgeons in the U.S. to use this groundbreaking surgical tool to precisely sculpt and reduce nasal bony humps and replace the traditional “hammer and chisel” technique for altering the structure of the nasal bones. The Piezo device precisely pares down the nasal hump, layer by layer, with a high-frequency oscillating tool.

What is the Piezo system for nose reshaping?

Piezo is an innovation that raises nose surgery to the next level. With an ultra-high frequency vibrating micro-saw that is so precise it spares the surrounding soft tissue and skin, the Piezo technology has long been in use for dental and oral surgical procedures. Over the past five years, Piezo has been used to perform rhinoplasty surgery in Europe.

The Piezo technique achieves remarkable success, improved precision, and reduced trauma when compared to the traditional rasp or hammer and chisel of older rhinoplasty techniques. Dr. Pearlman has been lecturing and demonstrating the use of this device at rhinoplasty meetings and dissection courses since it was FDA-approved in the United States in November of 2017.

Why is the Piezo system superior?

The Piezo helps with narrowing the bridge of the nose and can selectively act on bones or hard cartilage, without damaging the delicate adjacent soft tissues. The surgery involves far less trauma, surgical bleeding, bruising and swelling, and produces a more accurate, refined, aesthetic outcome.

What can the Piezo Ultrasonic device treat?

If your nose structure does not please you, due to any of the following conditions, the Piezo system can produce a superior outcome:

  • Crooked or asymmetrical nose
  • A hump on the nose bridge
  • Nose overly-large
  • Wide nose structure

How does it work?

This advanced aesthetic device generates ultrasonic vibrations that can cut and shave bone with a significantly reduced risk of damaging nose cartilage, nerves, blood vessels, or skin.

In a traditional rhinoplasty in which nasal bones are reshaped, the technique involved the use of surgical rasps or chisels.

With the Piezo system, the nasal bones can be resculpted and polished without causing extensive collateral damage to surrounding tissues. This precision tool allows Dr. Pearlman to precisely alter the nasal bones, preserving the soft tissue, for faster recovery time, less pain, bruising, swelling, and speeded regeneration and healing.

Piezo ultrasonic nose reshaping

Altering the width, shape, and profile of your nose structure may require a reshaping of the nasal bones. While many plastic surgeons are proficient at performing the traditional techniques, which involved the use of a manual chisel or another tool, the approach causes extensive damage to the surrounding tissue, along with a higher risk of and leaving you with an uneven result that required revision surgery.

Fine irregularities to the bone were more likely to be left behind when a surgeon altered the nasal bones manually. With the Piezo system, the nasal bones are refined, reshaped, and corrected with ultimate precision, with the added advantage of faster healing, and results achieved with less time, beautifully accurate.
