When you come in for a consultation to plan out your rhinoplasty procedure, one aspect to be discussed will be the incision technique. Your surgeon may recommend utilizing the closed rhinoplasty technique. What exactly is a closed rhinoplasty?
The closed rhinoplasty technique features tiny incisions within the nostrils – more specifically, between the internal nasal cartilages. The open technique, the other method of performing surgical rhinoplasty, involves an incision that is more visible after surgery, since it is made on the outside of the nose. Hiding the incision is preferable for many patients.
