Dr. Michael Omidi, the inventor of the Designed Rhinoplasty technique is in the process of Trademarking a revolutionary Rhinoplasty procedure. Designed Rhinoplasty™ is a technique that allows the nose to be very accurately shaped using computer and 3-D analysis of the nose’s characteristics such as length, width, proportions, and other facial characteristics. Other software is used to “morph” or shape the nose into one that is mutually agreed upon by the surgeon and the patient. The two photos are digitally compared providing accurate details on exactly how many ml the dorsum would be dropped, and the different angles of the nose. This in essence provides a blueprint and a road map.
Dr. Omidi states that this is analogous to a pilot landing a plane using instrumentation when visibility is very poor. Actual quantitative data is used to alter the appearance of the nose with extreme accuracy. To achieve this accuracy Dr. Omidi depends on an Ultrasonic saw and shaver called the Piezotome in addition to the power-assisted Microaire rasp to make fine adjustments to the nose with extreme accuracy. Cartilage grafts are then used to secure the tip and dorsum into the desired position to provide strength and support.
Dr. Omidi also believes that this technology can help correct asymmetries between two sides of the nose since it can be analyzed in greater detail before the surgery whereas in the past the surgeon would just have to depend on trial and error to correct asymmetries. Often the asymmetries are obscured during surgery because of swelling, bleeding, and infiltration of anesthetic fluid.
Software technology involved is Adobe Photoshop™, Plastic Surgery Simulator™, and Rhinobase™, which analyzes the cephalometrics of the face and nose providing insight on the features, asymmetries and amount of tissue needing to be removed. The hand held rasps and cutters, though not yet obsolete in the plastic surgery world, will be a thing of the past replaced by Acteon Piezotome which used ultrasound technology to shave or cut through bone with much less trauma or injury to vessels.
“With the advent of this technique, the wild card is removed from Rhinoplasties providing consistent results with minimal tissue trauma leading to a faster recovery.
