Rhinoplasty Surgery

The Surgery Itself

Nose

Rhinoplasty is one of the most common, yet most difficult and precise plastic surgery procedures there is. The surgeon will perform it mostly by feel. There are two main techniques used: closed rhinoplasty, and open rhinoplasty.

Closed rhinoplasty involves incisions confined to the inside of the nose. Swelling is minimal, and recovery time fastest. The down side is a lack of visibility for the surgeon, who may not be able to achieve the exact changes that you want.

Open rhinoplasty literally opens the nose, giving the surgeon greater visibility. Swelling and bruising last longer, but the surgeon is able to bring about a more satisfying, precise result.
