The nose makes a very specific first impression. The size, shape, proportions, and overall appearance of your nose are often judged from the moment you meet someone. To address a nasal malformation, many patients come in for rhinoplasty surgery. With this procedure, your plastic surgeon will be choosing between the open and closed rhinoplasty incision techniques.
The open incision technique offer the most access out of the two options. During this, the skin of the nose can be precisely lifted, allowing the plastic surgeon better visibility and access to the underlying nasal architecture. This option involves incisions on the columella, which is the region of external skin that separates the nostrils.
The closed incision technique is less invasive and is often the best choice for rhinoplasty surgery. During this technique, the surgery is conducted through small incisions made in the inner nostrils. These incisions leave well-hidden post-surgical marks within the nostrils.
