Ultrasonic rhinoplasty vs traditional rhinoplasty

In traditional rhinoplasty, bones are cut by manual methods that cause severe damage to the surrounding tissues, while in ultrasonic rhinoplasty, bones are cut by an ultrasonic device which eliminates the damage caused to the tissues and reduces bleeding.

There are several reasons why using ultrasonic rhinoplasty is a lot better than traditional rhinoplasty in certain cases:

  1. It does not harm the soft surroundings and reduces trauma damage.
  2. Reduces the traditional rhinoplasty risks.
