What is Piezo Rhinoplasty?

Piezo rhinoplasty is a surgical technique used to reshape and enhance the appearance of the nose. Unlike traditional rhinoplasty involving surgical instruments such as chisels (known as  osteotomes), Piezo rhinoplasty utilizes ultrasonic vibrations to sculpt the nasal bone and cartilage precisely. This advanced technology allows for more accurate and controlled bone cutting, resulting in reduced trauma to the surrounding tissues and a faster recovery time for the patient.

The Piezo System can address various cosmetic concerns related to the nose. Some common aesthetic issues that can be treated using this system include the following:

  • Asymmetrical noses
  • Dorsal hump
  • Overly large nose
  • Wide nasal bridge

Good Health
Aesthetic Goals
Adequate Age

Benefits of Piezo Rhinoplasty in Portland

  • Precision: Piezoelectric instruments allow for highly precise bone reshaping, reducing the risk of collateral damage to surrounding soft tissues.
  • Less Bruising: Piezo rhinoplasty typically results in significantly less bruising post-operation due to its precision. Most patients have no bruising at all after surgery.
  • Improved Control: The Piezo technique allows for controlled and gentle osteotomies (bone cuts) in a much more predictable fashion.
  • Minimal Bleeding: With less tissue disruption, patients experience significantly less bleeding during and after the procedure.

Recovery and Results

Immediately post-op, you may experience swelling and bruising, with a nasal splint in place to protect your new nasal contour. As swelling subsides over weeks to months, the final shape of your nose will become apparent. The precise nature of Piezo techniques typically results in more predictable and satisfying results.

Surgical Technique


1. Anesthesia 

Anesthesia will be administered to keep you comfortable and asleep during the surgical procedure.

2. Incisions

In most cases, incisions are made on the columella (between the nostrils) and hidden in the inside of the nose.

3. Reshaping

Dr. Vila will carefully sculpt the nasal bones and cartilage using precision Piezoelectric instruments.

4. Repositioning

Nasal tissues and skin are redraped over the newly shaped structure.

5. Sutures

Incisions are closed with sutures, which will dissolve over time.
