A new rhinoplasty procedure popularized by Dr. Aaron Kosins MD from Newport Beach, California and Dr. Olivier Gerbault from France is being touted as the “most disruptive technology to happen to rhinoplasty in over 20 years”. Piezosurgery is being hailed as a revolution in rhinoplasty because of the results it has been producing.
Behind breast augmentation and liposuction, rhinoplasty is the third most popular plastic surgery procedure in the country. Even though it was the third most performed procedure for the year 2017, patients spent more money on rhinoplasty than any other surgery. It is among the most difficult of all cosmetic procedures because the nose has many intricate parts. The risks involved with rhinoplasty include difficulty breathing through the nose, permanent numbness in and around it, the possibility of an uneven looking nose, pain discoloration or swelling that may persist, scarring and possibly a need for additional surgery. Botched nose jobs are so common that it has even inspired a popular reality TV show.
Piezosurgery is a technology in which ultrasonic energy is used to cut hard tissues like bone while leaving the soft tissue intact. Traditionally the standard instruments that are used are over 100 years old. The old methods use a hammer and chisel to break the bones, a procedure called an osteotomy, so that they can be moved and narrowed. This process has always been done “blind” which in this context means that the instruments were placed under or through the skin without a way to look at what was happening. This led to unforeseen bone fractures in some cases.
Piezosurgery offers a way to do that gently with less bruising and less swelling. It is a meticulous soft tissue sparing system for bone cutting based on low-frequency ultrasonic micro-vibrations. This leads to shorter recovery times. It also lends itself to increased precision and accuracy. Piezosurgery is a very effective way of removing the asymmetries and irregularities of the bone tissue. It also improves the final result dramatically especially with the frontal view and dorsal aesthetic lines. Dr. Kosins has made available over 5 before and after pictures for the consideration of potential patients on his website at http://aaronkosinsmd.com/. In the pictures, he places an importance on the contours of the nose from the frontal view and the dorsal aesthetic lines. Piezosurgery makes it possible to accurately sculpt bones to smooth the transition from the forehead and brows to the nose.
Piezosurgery is positioned to reduce the number of surgeries gone wrong due to its nonintrusive and gentle method of carving the bone. Piezosurgery has also been used in dentistry. It was pioneered in the 1980s to overcome the limitations of traditional instrumentation in oral bone surgery. Its use in the field of cosmetic surgery is relatively new and very few doctors are qualified to handle the procedure in the United States. It is very important to find the right doctor with the proper previous experience in the procedure.
Dr. Kosins has worked to develop technology in the basic sciences and published his findings in the fields of nerve regeneration, stem cell technology, microsurgery, facial aging, and rhinoplasty. His work has been published in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, Annals of Plastic Surgery, and the Canadian Journal of Plastic Surgery. He has also presented at the Plastic Surgery Research Council, the American Society of Peripheral Nerve, the California Society of Plastic Surgeons, and the annual Rhinoplasty Society meeting. He is a graduate of the University of California from where he has a dual degree in Medicine and Business Administration. He is Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
