Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Paris

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?

Before the intervention

  • Two medical consultations with your plastic surgeon to analyze your nose and plan your cosmetic rhinoplasty.
  • Anesthesia consultation
  • Pre-operative blood test
  • Smoking cessation

Process of the operation

  • Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia in the operating room.
  • The piezotome has the ability to act in a targeted manner on the bones and cartilage. No injury to the soft tissues: skin, mucosa and fragile cartilage on the tip of the nose.
  • In addition, the fracture lines created are very precise and eliminate the risk of uncontrolled fracture lines.
  • With less surrounding trauma, you decrease the amount of surgical bleeding, postoperative bruising, swelling and pain.
  • The surgeon gently reshapes the bones and cartilages of the nose to achieve the desired result: treatment of a nasal hump, reduction of the length of the nose, reduction of the projection of the nose, treatment of a nasal deviation.

Although few plastic surgeons currently offer the procedure, ultrasonic rhinoplasty will grow in the coming years.

Post-operative care

  • No splinting or plastering required after the procedure
  • No wicks in the nose 
  • Bruising 7 to 10 days
  • Mild pain
  • Oedema
  • Appreciable result between 1 and 3 months after surgery
  • Final result 1 year after surgery

Définition of breast augmentation

Definition of breast augmentation

It is a plastic surgery procedure that can improve the volume and shape of your breasts and correct sagging and loss of breast volume associated with age, weight loss, pregnancy or feeding with milk.

This procedure is usually performed with breast implants. They are available in a wide range of diameters, volumes, and projections, and your surgeon can suggest a size that best suits your body and goals.

Breast implants filled with silicone gel or saline are inserted through an incision around the nipples (periareolar), under the breasts (in the crease under the breast), or in the armpit (transaxillary) and then placed under or over the muscle pectoral.

In some cases, implants are associated with fat transfer because the fat to achieve an even more natural result. Another augmentation option is a breast lift, which lifts sagging breasts and repositions the nipple in the correct position. It can be combined with implants.

It is intended for the following patients:


  • Some women have very underdeveloped breasts due to a small volume mammary gland.
  • Other women have developed breasts but find them a bit small compared to their morphology.
  • There are also breast malformations (tuberous breasts in particular) where the breast does not develop normally.
  • In other cases, it may be a loss of volume after pregnancy.
  • Finally, significant weight loss can also cause a loss of breast volume.

The procedure can be performed at any age from the age of 18. A minor patient is usually not considered fit to undergo an augmentation, but it is however possible in the context of malformation in reconstructive surgery.

This cosmetic surgery technique also corrects breast asymmetry.


What is the recovery time after an ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

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.

Is ultrasonic rhinoplasty for a crooked or bumpy nose better?

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.

Is ultrasonic rhinoplasty more expensive?

No, the price of rhinoplasty does not depend on the technique used but on the complexity of your case.

What are the advantages of ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

  • Better control of surgical procedures
  • No fracture of the nasal bones
  • Less time spent after surgery
  • Less postoperative pain

Is ultrasonic rhinoplasty a good option to get rid of a bump on the nose?

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.
