What is ultrasonic rhinoplasty?
Dr. Moubayed was the first surgeon to bring ultrasonic rhinoplasty to Quebec. Ultrasonic rhinoplasty is when a special instrument called the Piezotome precisely sculpts bone and cartilage without damaging skin and soft tissue. This enables greater precision and less soft tissue damage in many cases.

What are the potential benefits of ultrasonic rhinoplasty?
The main benefits of ultrasonic rhinoplasty are to change the shape of the nose, bringing it in harmony with the rest of the face, and to improve breathing in someone who cannot breathe well. A priority for Dr. Moubayed is to preserve a natural and non-operated appearance as well as maintaining the ethnic aspect of each nose.
Some patients have breathing or sinus problems that need to be identified before surgery. Dr. Moubayed always performs a complete evaluation with a nasal endoscopy in these cases.
How do I prepare myself for the consultation?
It is a good idea to prepare yourself for your consultation for rhinoplasty and this is easily done.
First, prepare to list in order of importance the elements you would like to improve in your nose (bridge, tip, nostrils, among others).
Second, you can bring with you photos of elegant noses according to you.
Third, if you suffer from a breathing problem, be ready to talk about it. If you have undergone a CT scan of your sinuses, bring your CD with you to look at it with Dr. Moubayed. If you have had allergy testing, bring your results with you. If you had a sleep study, bring those results with you as well.
Finally, if you have had cosmetic soft tissue fillers to the nose, try to find out which products were injected and when. If you have already had nasal surgery, try to bring with you the operative report of your prior procedure if this is possible.
How long does ultrasonic rhinoplasty take to execute in Montreal?
Rhinoplasty is a surgery of finesse and precision. When practiced using modern techniques that maximize control, it usually lasts between one and three hours.
What type of anesthesia do you use for ultrasonic rhinoplasty?
For the comfort of our patients, we use general anesthesia. The type of anesthesia used is total intravenous anesthesia (without using anesthetic gases). This type of anesthesia is safe and helps reduce nausea and coughing after surgery. Our patients often report how positive their anesthesia experience was.
Sometimes, certain patients can have surgery under local anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation when the procedure performed is minor.
How long am I swollen after ultrasonic rhinoplasty?
After a week, you will be very presentable in society. The majority of swelling decreases over the next three months, but the swelling at the tip of the nose can take up to a year to disappear. For revision rhinoplasty cases, swelling often lasts longer than a year.
