Open rhinoplasty is a technique used during rhinoplasty surgery. When a surgeon needs a greater degree of access to the patient’s underlying nasal tissues, they may choose this technique over others, such as closed rhinoplasty and non-surgical nose reshaping.
Complex surgical solutions typically necessitate the open rhinoplasty approach. One example of a complex nasal procedure would be any kind of revision rhinoplasty – surgery meant to correct problems stemming from a past rhinoplasty procedure. Any rhinoplasty meant to augment and bolster the internal structure of the nose would also benefit from the open technique.
