Rhinoplasty (nose job) is the most demanded plastic surgery procedure, and its postoperative recovery process is what patients are most curious about. The most important change in rhinoplasty in recent years is the use of a device called Piezo that reshapes the bone with an energy generated by ultrasound. This technique enables patients to experience a more comfortable recovery period after surgery.
- Type of anesthesia: General Anesthesia
- Duration of operation: 1-3 hours
- Hospital stay: 1 night
- Length of stay in Istanbul: 5 days
- Returning to daily activities: 5 days
What is the Piezo system? How is it used?
The Piezo system is a device that works with sound waves, allowing us to cut and reshape the nasal bone very finely without damaging the skin and cartilage. It is a high-tech product made very suitable for rhinoplasty, which enables us to make clear and fine bone cutting and rasping operations with its newly developed applicators.
With a piezo device, it is possible to make millimetric movements that increase aesthetic success during surgery, and to make bone incisions in the desired directions and angles like making drawing on the bone. As a result of all this, swelling and bruising are minimized. This technique also reduces the possibility of postoperative protrusions and irregularities in the nasal ridge and nasal root. Piezo Surgery is used not only to correct deformities, but also to correct bone curvatures (septum deviation) in the nose. Therefore, this technique is also used to treat health problems such as snoring, dry mouth, agitation, irritability, and decreased effort capacity. Rhinoplasty operations performed with a piezo device allow for 60% faster bone healing compared to the conventional (former) procedure. For patients, the most important advantage of this technique is that it ensures a more comfortable recovery period by causing less swelling and bruising in the postoperative period of rhinoplasty.
Undoubtedly, Piezo is not the latest breakthrough in the field of rhinoplasty, but it is a system that has taken its place in this field of plastic surgery as an important technological development that provides precision in nasal bone reshaping.
Returning to normal life after piezo rhinoplasty
The most frequently asked question by patients is about whether the nasal packs to be placed in the nose after the operation will cause difficulty in breathing. By using leaf-shaped silicone nasal packs, which are quite comfortable in this regard, the airway of the patient is kept unobstructed.
Another important issue that patients are most curious about is when they can return to work and their normal lives. After rhinoplasty, the patient stays in the hospital overnight, and the nasal packs are removed after 4 days. In some cases, massage may be recommended after 3 weeks. It is recommended not to wear glasses for a period of 2 months. Patients should not swim in the sea or pool for a period of 2 months. Of course, it is important for patients to avoid taking a blow to the nose, in short, protect themselves during the recovery period. Today, advancing technologies have made it easier to perform rhinoplasty procedures for surgeons, and have also improved the comfort of the patients.
