closed versus open rhinoplasty

  • There are two different ways to make incisions in rhinoplasty surgery.
  • The closed approach involves incisions on the inside of the nose only while the open approach uses those incisions plus an additional small incision across the skin underneath the nose
  • The open approach allows for far better visualization of the structures and is preferred in many cases by many surgeons.
  • However, many surgeons like the closed approach as they can see the results from each maneuver on the outside of the nose immediately
  • As long as your plastic surgeon is experienced, it really does not make a big difference which type of incision is done.
  • Dr. Suzman likes both open and closed rhinoplasty and chooses the best approach depending on each individual patient's requests
