Rhinoplasty surgery is designed to reshape the nose if there has been damage, disfigurement or if the patient is unsatisfied with the appearance of their nose. With the nose’s central position on the face, subtle changes to the size or shape of the nose can make significant improvements to your overall facial balance and harmony.
Rhinoplasty surgery is performed in two types of techniques: opened and closed. In the closed technique, incisions are made within the nostril. The closed technique is useful for hiding any potential scarring due to incisions. The opened procedure involves an incision across the columella, the strip of tissue that separates the nostrils. The closed procedure may not be available depending on the structure to be operated on.
