Open VS Closed Rhinoplasty
What Is The Difference Between Open And Closed Rhinoplasty?
Open and closed rhinoplasty procedures are two different surgical approaches to a nose job, or nose reshaping surgery. Open rhinoplasty is performed from outside of the nose, with a small incision placed on the columella (the fleshy column between the nostrils). Closed rhinoplasty involves only incisions placed within the nostrils. The choice of procedure lies in which method will achieve optimal results.
In cases that require easier access to the surgery site and increased visibility of the area to be treated, an open rhinoplasty will be recommended. Open rhinoplasty involves creating an incision along the width of the columella and lifting the skin so as to allow greater visibility and increased precision. This approach has many advantages as our surgeon gains access to the entire nose structure, including the nasal tip.
This procedure is often required in revision rhinoplasty to correct surgical errors, collapse of nose structure, or other aesthetic or structural problem. This method would also be used for cases that require a more significant reshaping of the nose.
This surgical method involves accessing the areas to be reshaped from the within the nostril. A closed rhinoplasty may be appropriate for minor corrections and reshaping. This method is less invasive which means reduced healing time as well as less post-procedure swelling. Since the incisions are made within the nostrils this also means there will be no visible scarring. This procedure is often used on patients who require only minor reshaping of the nasal tip.
