What is ultrasound?

Many people are familiar with ultrasound scans conducted during pregnancy and when diagnosing illnesses. In this context, ultrasound is used to create sonogram pictures of inside of the body. However, in a cosmetic context, it’s powers can be harnessed during surgery to increase the accuracy and precision of rhinoplasty, liposuction, and jaw reshaping procedures.


How does it work?

During both Jaw Reshaping and Rhinoplasties, Dr Yannis will use a specialised, ultra-fine instrument called a Piezo that emits ultrasonic waves directly to the bone to sculpt the desired treatment area.

A Piezo is unique because it can still deliver powerful energy to the bone while ensuring that the blood supply and nerves remain intact and un-compromised. Ultrasound is also used during VASER liposuction. VASER liposuction is one of our advanced body sculpting treatments that can reduce abdominal fat, tighten and contour your abs – known as ‘Ab Etching’. Often this is performed by Mr Reza, who specialises in all our Body Surgeries.

The biggest benefit of ultrasound surgeries is that they are less invasive and traumatic to the body which means less recovery is required so you can enjoy the results of your surgery sooner!

What is an ultrasonic rhinoplasty?

At 111 Harley St., we call our ultrasound nose jobs the ‘Preservation Rhinoplasty’ due to the Piezo’s less invasive and high-performing technology. As the name suggests, this type of Piezo Rhinoplasty works to preserve the nose as much as possible and does not use the more invasive, mechanical tools that may be required during a classic Rhinoplasty. This precise technology makes the ultrasound technique the first choice for any nose tip surgery, as this can means more accuracy when creating optimal results.

With any Ultrasonic Piezo Rhinoplasty, any incisions made will be hidden inside the nose and Dr Yannis will work inside the nostrils. This means:

1. The concern of scarring will be significantly lower.

2. Recovery is a lot faster than with a traditional Rhinoplasty as there is less trauma made to the surrounding nose tissues.


What is ultrasonic Jaw Reshaping?

A redefined jawline is something our patients ask for often, and with the desire for sharper frontal and side profiles, the jawline is one element that contributes to a defined appearance dramatically. With thanks to a Piezo, Dr Yannis can use this less invasive technique to strategically reshape the size and angle of his patients’ mandibles. Similarly, to an ultrasonic rhinoplasty, the Piezo can sculpt and trim the bone without causing significant trauma to the surrounding area and still produce next-level results.

What is VASER liposuction?

VASER is a type of liposuction that breaks down fat cells using ultrasound waves. It’s ideal for someone looking to sculpt their abs, shift stubborn body and facial fat or tighten loose skin.

Some popular treatment areas are the thighs, calves, hips, buttocks, abdomen, back, arms, neck and underneath the chin. This can also be considered a type of ‘double chin surgery’, especially if you’re looking for a minimally invasive and more natural way to achieve a tauter appearance.
