What is the difference Between Open or Closed Rhinoplasty Surgery?
Peter Abramson M.D. is an expert in both open and closed rhinoplasty techniques. Dr. Abramson stresses the importance of correcting existing nasal airway obstruction while delivering excellent cosmetic improvements. The main goal is to make the nose symmetrical and make a person’s nose proportional to the rest of the face.
Closed Rhinoplasty (Endonasal Surgery)
This is a scarless procedure that avoids the typical incision at the base of the nose that is a common open rhinoplasty technique. The incisions in a closed technique are confined to the inside of the nostrils and are, therefore, hidden.
Open Rhinoplasty Technique (External Rhinoplasty)
In an open rhinoplasty Dr. Abramson will make an incision at the base of the columella, the strut of tissue between the nostrils, and elevates the skin of of the cartilages. He then alters the cartilage shape. The primary benefit of the open technique is improved accuracy for reshaping the framework of the nose to achieve desired contouring.
Are You a Candidate for Closed Rhinoplasty?
A good candidate for closed rhinoplasty is an individual who has a defect in their nose that either makes them feel self-conscious or makes them feel unhappy. It could be that an individual does not like the way that their nose has changed shape with age. A closed rhinoplasty is not as invasive as an open procedure. In some cases, a closed rhinoplasty procedure is preferable because it is still able to produce dramatic results only with less downtime. However, it all depends on your unique situation.
During your consultation Dr. Abramson will cover the pros and cons of either the closed or open rhinoplasty surgery, and which would deliver the best outcome for your nose reshaping goals.
Closed rhinoplasty is a powerful procedure that can drastically improve the way that you look, making you happier and giving you the self-confidence you have always wanted.
