Amazing nose surgeon, highly knowledgeable in his expertise. Gave me the most perfect nose I could have ever asked for, was mind blown. However my little boy decided to head bump me after surgery so my results changed a bit but this was not because of Dr. Shah. It's important to follow his aftercare rules and guidelines on healing because the healing process afterwards is probably the most important thing. His assistant Tatiana is so so sweet! 10/10 would recommend.

Having had a facial plastic surgery in the past with several issues It was scary to trust another plastic surgeon. I was looking for a specialist to fix a badly broken nose and septum. So glad I did decide on Dr Shah. He said it was a tough surgery but did a fantastic job. I am only 10 days out from surgery and I feel fantastic and am very optimistic with the outcome. I am still swollen and will wait for stuff to settle down. A very caring doctor and staff. I am very happy with my new nose at this point and know it takes about a whole year to see the final results but the minute he took the packing and tubes out I could actually breathe!! I've been a lifetime mouth breather since 7th grade. It's wonderful!!! I would definitely go to Dr Shah for any issue you might be considering. He has a pro healing regimen that works great. I am older and only had bruising along my nasal labial folds. I am an out to town patient and he did a great consult over the computer and really took his time listening to me.

My nose is so cute and natural looking - Always wanted a rhinoplasty, also struggled for a long time with breathing and figured a septoplasty would suit me. After doing a lot of research into the best doctor I landed on Dr. Shah. His experience and credentials are beyond what I saw for other doctors in my area. His personality is really what sold me however! he is so easy to talk to and really you can tell he is a compassionate person who cares about his patients overall health and happiness. I am so happy with my nose, my sleeping has improved cause I can finally breathe. Also its so cute and natural looking, I was a little concerned going into this that I would end up with a cookie cutter snapchat nose, but looking at myself its almost as if I was born with it! However it is a long healing process but I am very confident that despite it changing from day to day (I am only 6 weeks out) its going to end up amazing :)

My nose was a disaster. I had various rhinoplasties from a few surgeons across the country after breaking my nose. Dr Shah understood how to approach the problem, and corrected visual cotorsion in my tip. Very very happy with the results. He is one of the best in the business.

The technique for ultrasonic rhinoplasty is a bit different from that of traditional rhinoplasty surgery. Instead of using hammers, chisels, and rasps, which create more damage are require more healing time, ultrasound, or focused sound waves, are used. Using an ultrasound wand that can be equipped with different tips, humps in the nose can be removed without damaging underlying tissue while allowing Dr. Shah to create a very precise nasal ridge. The end result is a more beautiful nose with far less trauma, less swelling, and almost no bruising.

Before/After Surgery

Because of the more extensive skin undermining needed to perform ultrasonic rhinoplasty, the surgery itself takes 2-3 hours to perform. Recovery after ultrasonic rhinoplasty is similar to traditional rhinoplasty. You still need to wear a nasal splint for seven days. You still need to sleep with your head of bed elevated, and you still need to apply ice to the nose. Dr. Shah still uses night time taping and soft tissue massage techniques after the splint is removed at postoperative day number seven. The difference is that your nose looks more presentable to the public early on and the long-term final result is enhanced once full healing has occurred at the one year postoperative mark.

Anyone healthy enough for traditional rhinoplasty is a candidate for ultrasonic rhinoplasty. The investment in this procedure is offset by the reduced need for revision surgery in the future.

How much does ultrasonic rhinoplasty cost?

The cost of ultrasonic rhinoplasty varies based on a number of factors, mainly how complex your procedure is. Before estimating costs, Dr. Shah will listen to your concerns and goals to help develop your custom treatment plan. Once this is complete, he can go over costs for the facility, anesthesia, and more. To get your best results, it's better to focus on selecting an experienced surgeon, like Dr. Shah, instead of the lowest cost. To help make your surgery easy to afford, Shah Aesthetic Surgery accepts several payment methods, and we can help you find low-interest financing.

Will my insurance cover an ultrasonic rhinoplasty procedure?

Although ultrasonic Piezo rhinoplasty to improve your appearance is not paid for by insurance, if your nose reshaping surgery is considered medically necessary to improve your breathing, some of your costs may be covered. If you are considering using your insurance, please tell Dr. Shah in your consultation. We can help you submit the needed paperwork and information to your insurance to properly process your claim.

Can I combine ultrasonic Piezo rhinoplasty with other facial surgeries?

Some patients think about combining ultrasonic rhinoplasty with another procedure, like cheek or chin augmentation. Combining surgeries for a more dramatic result can be discussed during your consultation with Dr. Shah. Once he understands your goals, he can help you decide which procedures will be in your treatment plan. Ultrasonic Piezo rhinoplasty can help your whole face appear more balanced, so you should wait to see your results before considering another procedure.

What about ethnic rhinoplasty?

Ethnic rhinoplasty is about improving the nose while still keeping your cultural identity. This may be a consideration if you are African-American, Asian, or Middle Eastern. During your consultation with Dr. Shah, you can discuss what you like about your nose and what you want to change. This will allow him to customize your ultrasonic Piezo rhinoplasty treatment plan to give you the best results.
