In the realm of aesthetic enhancements, the quest for the perfect nose has taken a transformative turn with the advent of Piezotome Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty. This groundbreaking technique has emerged as a superior alternative to traditional rhinoplasty, offering patients a safer, more precise, and faster route to achieving their desired nasal aesthetics.

Understanding the Need for a Better Alternative

Traditional rhinoplasty, with its use of rasps, hammers, and chisels, has long been the conventional method for nose reshaping. However, there are inherent risks in this approach, such as damage to the nasal structure and surrounding tissues. Patients have long sought a safer and more advanced solution. Enter Piezotome Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty, a cutting-edge technique that leverages piezoelectric-powered instruments vibrating with ultrasonic waves to sculpt the nose precisely and safely, reducing pain, bruising, swelling, and overall downtime.

Boston Center for Plastic Surgery Leading the Way

The Boston Center for Plastic Surgery has embraced this revolutionary approach and Dr. Sanan is currently the only physician utilizing the Piezotome Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty technique in Massachusetts. Driven by a commitment to patient safety and optimal outcomes, the practice is dedicated to offering the latest advancements in plastic surgery to its discerning clientele.  

“The most common questions I get about rhinoplasty are about the recovery time,” says Dr. Akshay Sanan, double board-certified facial plastic surgeon at Boston Center for Plastic Surgery.  “Patients want to get back to their day-to-day life quickly, and to conceal the signs of surgery as much as possible.  With Piezotome Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty, we can cut recovery time, and significantly reduce pain, bruising and swelling, making for a much more pleasant and efficient experience.”

Why Piezotome Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty Stands Out

1. Precision in Reshaping

The Piezotome technique allows for unparalleled precision in reshaping the nose. By using ultrasonic sound waves, surgeons can precisely cut and sculpt bone and cartilage without compromising the surrounding soft tissue. This precision is crucial for achieving the desired aesthetic outcomes.

2. Safer Procedure

With the use of advanced technology, Piezotome Rhinoplasty significantly reduces the risks associated with traditional instruments like rasps and chisels. The controlled and precise nature of the ultrasonic waves ensures a safer surgical experience for patients.

3. Minimized Trauma and Quicker Recovery

Unlike traditional rhinoplasty, Piezotome Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty minimizes trauma to the nasal structure and surrounding tissues. This results in reduced postoperative discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Patients can expect a quicker recovery period, allowing them to enjoy the results of their rhinoplasty sooner.


In the pursuit of the ideal nose, Piezotome Ultrasonic Rhinoplasty emerges as a beacon of innovation, offering a safer, more precise, and faster alternative to traditional methods. The Boston Center for Plastic Surgery's commitment to staying at the forefront of technological advancements ensures that patients in Massachusetts and across New England can access the unparalleled benefits of Piezotome Rhinoplasty.
