Risks of piezo rhinoplasty

Each surgery is always associated with risks and complications despite ultrasonic rhinoplasty among other procedures seems safer, nevertheless, there are risks you should know.

Disturbance in breathing

If during surgery a lot of part of the inside the nose that includes cartilage and bone is removed causes disturbance in breathing. This complication can become a big deal. In some cases, surgeons suggest revision surgical.


Infection is a common complication in surgery also that is observed in piezo ultrasonic. To treat infections often prescribed antibiotic. Sometimes needs additional surgery. therefore surgeons have strongly emphasized to taking medication before and after surgery without missing a doze.


However low bleeding during each surgery is totally natural. But if bleeding is over more than the normal amount it can be a sign of rupture and injury of the vessel.

Nervous damages

Some patients react to instrument ultrasonic rhinoplasty. They experience weakness in the nose, numbness, or tingling after the nose job. Usually, this complication is temporary and is removed after a while but in some cases becomes a permanent issue.

Septum damage

Septum damage or perforation septum happens unintentionally during piezo ultrasonic rhinoplasty. The result of septum damage includes pain, breathing problem and bleeding. The surgeon to repair the septum has to do surgery again.

So can be concluded scars in this way reaches a minimum, nevertheless, the scar is still observable. if the incision is not made skilled or the patient has any allergic or keloid scarring this complication that would be annoying.


Hematoma is more advanced bruising. Processing blood collection is called a hematoma.it is different from blood clots. May hematoma leads to blocking of the airway.

Necrosis is a rare complication. Smoking, pressure on the splint, and removing fat tissue too can effectively create it.

The recovery period after ultrasonic rhinoplasty

Of course Not. Nose job, these days, is one of the most trouble-free surgeries, particularly for prolific Iranian surgeons that normally perform 50-100 operation during a month.
As a matter of fact, it depends on the surgical technique that the doctor applies subject to your nose type (fleshy or bony). .However, the surgery typically takes approximately 1-2 hours
First of all, you will not feel any pain during the operation because general anaesthesia would be administered. Secondly, the pain experienced after the surgery when regaining consciousness may be different for each individual which mostly relies on one’s pain tolerance threshold and the surgery method you underwent (close or open). Yet there’s no need to worry, as you will be provided with proper medication prescribed by the doctor to ease your post-operative pain
Generally, the majority of the nose swelling should begin to subside within 3 days and you can resume normal activities slowly. Most people can get back to work after 1-2 weeks, depending on the type of work. Nevertheless, don’t forget to consult with your doctor if you are going to do vigorous activities or sports such as lifting, pushing, etc
