Rhinoplasty is one of the most commonly performed procedures whiles being the most complex and the most difficult, especially to revise should dissatisfaction arise. No two noses are the same. Learn about the rhinoplasty techniques and implants available which would be best suited to enhance your nose.
There are two methods for rhinoplasty: Open Rhinoplasty and Closed Rhinoplasty.
Open rhinoplasty involves using a horizontal at the collumela just below the tip. The nasal tissues are then lifted to allow the surgeon access to view and addresses the tip cartilages along with any concerning deficiencies. This exposure is particularly advantageous for the occasional rhinoplasty surgeon due to exposure of the nasal structure.
The trade off for open rhinoplasty is the external scar which, while generally heals well in most patients, some patients who are more prone of scarring may be left with a visible mark.
The closed rhinoplasty, done entirely in a small incision inside the nostril, does take greater manual dexterity and the technical knowledge to perform an operation “through a key hole”. Experienced surgeons will tell you that their visualization is not impaired, and in fact, this approach of course has been used for nearly 100 years with great success.
