Ultrasonic rhinoplasty has made rhinoplasty and nose surgery safer and more reproducible in order to obtain a natural result with simpler postoperative procedures.
This gentle rhinoplasty technique uses a device that uses ultrasound or high-speed sound waves: the piezotome.
This is a major advance in rhinoplasty techniques and also applies to conservation rhinoplasty techniques which aim to preserve and maintain the structures of the nose by reshaping rather than using ablative or destructive techniques.
The price of ultrasonic rhinoplasty starts at 6000 euros.
Social security coverage is available for functional rhinoplasty.
This information sheet on ultrasonic nasal surgery was written in June 2021 by Dr. Ralph ABBOU who is a qualified plastic surgeon by the Conseil de l’Ordre des Médecins in Paris specialized in nose and face surgery.
Dr. Ralph ABBOU defended his medical thesis on the subject of rhinoplasty and has published several scientific publications on the subject.
Dr. Ralph ABBOU participates in several congresses per year in France and abroad in order to maintain and perfect his theoretical and technical skills.
What is the procedure?
Although few plastic surgeons currently offer the procedure, ultrasonic rhinoplasty will grow in the coming years.

The cost of ultrasonic rhinoplasty depends on the complexity of your case.
Social security coverage is possible in case of respiratory discomfort.
My experience with ultrasonic rhinoplasty is that it is very useful because it allows for precise bone sculpting and offers more versatility during surgery. In addition, there is no collateral damage to the soft tissue since the ultrasound energy is transferred to the bone itself and does not affect the surrounding tissue. This means faster recovery times with little or no bruising in the early healing phase. The fact that the use of the hammer and osteotome is avoided allows for better surgical control, thus avoiding unwanted fractures and splintering of the bone. This is useful for very precise control of bone remodeling and reduces the revision rate of bone irregularities, but it still takes several months for the final stages of the healing stabilization period and to see the final result. In practice, after 7 days on average, you will have little bruising on your face, whereas for a traditional rhinoplasty, it takes more like 14 days to have no bruising on your face.
The answer to this question is that it is not the tool that matters for the best results, but the experience of the surgeon using the tool. My experience is that ultrasonic rhinoplasty is very useful because it allows for precise bone sculpting and is especially helpful in twisted noses, deviations and post-traumatic deformities. The ability to reshape and sculpt bone offers more versatility during surgery. In addition, there is no collateral soft tissue damage since the ultrasound energy is transferred to the bone itself and does not affect the surrounding tissue. This means faster recovery times with little or no bruising.
No, the price of rhinoplasty does not depend on the technique used but on the complexity of your case.
The fact that the hammer and chisel or osteotome technique is avoided allows for better control, thus avoiding unwanted fractures and uncontrolled bone chips. This is helpful in controlling bone remodeling very precisely and reduces the revision rate for bone irregularities so yes, ultrasonic rhinoplasty is a very good option for treating a nasal hump.
