Modern technological advancements such as PIEZOSURGERY® have made it possible to perform rhinoplasty with an even greater degree of technical accuracy while minimising trauma during surgery.
Innovation has always been a core value at Manchester Cosmetic Centre, second only to unparalleled patient care and natural-looking results. During your Manchester Piezo ultrasonic rhinoplasty, Dr. Abel Mounir utilises tech-driven tools, allowing him to offer his patients a more refined rhinoplasty result and potentially less painful recovery.
Rhinoplasty, a procedure that addresses cosmetic concerns or breathing difficulties, is one of the most popular elective surgical procedures.
Rhinoplasty is not a one-size-fits-all service. Surgeons rely on various techniques customised to each patient’s specific needs. Mectron PIEZOSURGERY® is a piezoelectric surgical technique backed by 15 years of clinical research. Piezo ultrasonic rhinoplasty employs high-tech vibrating tools which improve cutting precision during the operation with less bleeding and bruising.
Conventional rhinoplasty relies on a hammer-and-chisel technique to shave down portions of bone. Piezo rhinoplasty’s ultrasonic surgical tools are considerably gentler and more precise. Unlike ordinary osteotomes (bone chisels), these advanced surgical tools emit ultrasonic micro-vibrations to aid in shaping the nose, giving the surgeon perfect control.
Revision rhinoplasty is more technically challenging compared to initial rhinoplasty procedures. Scar tissue, missing cartilage, and structural changes to the anatomical planes of the nose are just a few of the obstacles surgeons might face as they operate. Powerful ultrasonic surgical tools like Piezo make it significantly easier for surgeons to perform complex rhinoplasties with better accuracy while lessening damage to the delicate nasal structures.
Piezo ultrasound rhinoplasty offers patients a potentially easier recovery. Patients tend to report less discomfort as they heal from operations performed with the Piezo technique. Clinical studies show that the ultrasound energy emitted during piezoelectric surgery reduces inflammation at the surgical site to expedite healing. PIEZOSURGERY® tools are also extremely precise. That ultimately means a greater chance of beautiful aesthetic outcomes.
Piezo rhinoplasty can be an excellent option for patients with asymmetry, a crooked bridge, a prominent dorsal hump, and other cosmetic or functional irregularities. Ideal candidates have realistic expectations and understand that all surgery carries risks before embarking on the procedure. Smoking, pregnancy, breastfeeding, body dysmorphia, and ailments such as haemophilia, heart disease, and uncontrolled diabetes are contraindications. If you'd like to find out if you'd be a good candidate for Piezo Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Manchester plastic surgeon, Dr. Abel Mounir, can address that and answer any other questions you have during an initial consultation.

After learning about your aesthetic concerns, examining your nose, and determining if Piezo ultrasound rhinoplasty in Manchester is an appropriate next step, Dr. Abel Mounir will explain what kind of results to expect.
Assuming your goals are aligned, he will advise you on preparing for surgery, potential risks, and aftercare. Dr. Mounir strongly recommends avoiding nicotine for at least six weeks before surgery.
While traditional rhinoplasty takes anywhere from 90 to 120 minutes, rhinoplasty performed with piezoelectric technology takes a bit longer at two to two-and-a-half hours.
Before the operation begins, you will receive twilight sedation. You will lose consciousness but still breathe on your own. Dr. Mounir administers intravenous antibiotics and then places the incisions hidden within the nostrils during closed rhinoplasty or across the columella (the skin between the nostrils) during open rhinoplasty. He makes the necessary incisions and refines the bony tissues aided by advanced ultrasonic tools. Once surgery is complete, he closes the incisions and applies an external nasal splint.
Most patients return home from the surgical centre after four to six hours. Plan on arranging a ride home and asking your chaperone to look after you for the next 24 hours.
You can expect soreness, swelling, bruising, and stuffiness. For the most part, these side effects resolve within two to three weeks. Sleeping with your head elevated on pillows will be most comfortable. Please allow at least 12 months to see the final results of your Manchester Piezo ultrasound rhinoplasty.

Risks like scarring, infection, excessive bleeding, asymmetry, sensation changes, blood clots, pulmonary embolism, and anaesthesia complications are exceedingly rare when performed by a highly qualified surgeon.
Dr. Mounir performs most of his Manchester rhinoplasties while the patient is under IV sedation, also called twilight anaesthesia. No breathing tube is necessary.
It is safe to wear eyeglasses six weeks after Piezo ultrasound-assisted rhinoplasty.
