Open Rhinoplasty vs Closed Rhinoplasty

What sets open rhinoplasty and close rhinoplasty surgery apart is the incision placement. In open rhinoplasty surgery, the incision is placed across the tissue between the nostrils and the underside of the nose, called a columella. In this procedure, the skin is lifted back for the process while the incision is under the nose. In closed rhinoplasty surgery, all incisions are made inside the nostrils. The nose is not exposed throughout the operation.

Open rhinoplasty is preferred for working on the nasal tip. A patient’s unique needs allow plastic surgeons to have maximum visibility of the nasal structure without altering the nose structure because some people may have more cartilage or bone than others.

In a close rhinoplasty, the goal is to reshape the tip of the nose, shorten the nose, or get rid of a dorsal hump in a crooked nose. A close rhinoplasty procedure is a more minor rhinoplasty procedure than an open rhinoplasty and is less invasive.

Other Rhinoplasty Types

Other types of nose surgery are available to correct various needs aside from just a simple nose job. Unlike wither an open or closed rhinoplasty, a few of these types are types of plastic surgery that is less0-invasive. Though these surgical rhinoplasty procedures are safe and practical, these nose jobs will still provide a better external appearance for the patient in the hands of an expert rhinoplasty surgeon.

A combination of both procedures is required in the case of a deviated septum called a septorhinoplasty. A septorhinoplasty can be considered a functional rhinoplasty because it facilitates better breathing. Another type is a revision rhinoplasty which aims to correct the appearance of a nose that has already had rhinoplasty before. A procedure called liquid rhinoplasty is also available. In this procedure, a filler ingredient is injected underneath the skin to change the nose’s structure temporarily. This type of plastic surgery is comparatively non-invasive and safe. But like any other plastic surgery or rhinoplasty procedure, there are still some possible complications though it is minimal in the way of an outpatient procedure that comes after this.

Rhinoplasty Pros

Facial Balance

The nose is the center of the face. Though some celebrities like Barbara Streisand and Barry Manilow are known for their nose, most people would prefer to have a nose of understated length with no imperfection. A well-proportioned nose will result in a better facial balance.

Improved Breathing Problems

Suppose you have a broken nose. A broken nose could result in a crooked septum. Repairing the septum will improve the nasal airflow. If the septum is crooked, then the sides of the nasal airway could be blocked or impede airflow. A septoplasty can correct this defect by straightening a crooked nose and septum. Another advantage of nose reshaping surgery is to enable accessibility for visually impaired in extreme cases in the hands of an experienced facial plastic surgeon who specializes in nasal surgery.

Improved Confidence and Self-image

If a large or crooked nose dominates a person’s facial features and gets bullied because of it, then correcting this can improve the self-image and confidence of the patient.

Rhinoplasty Cons

Rhinoplasty has Some Limitations

Many people with underlying health conditions may not be advised to take surgical rhinoplasty. Being subjected to general anesthesia complications can prove hazardous to certain people. Each nose is unique, and several nasal structures are challenging to correct through most rhinoplasty procedures.

Thick Skin

Some people may have thick overlying skin. It will be more challenging to work on the nasal tip in these cases.

Rhinoplasty Cost

Nose surgery or a nose job costs money. Rhinoplasty procedures usually cost between $9,000 to $12,000 in the Gilbert, Az area for uncomplicated cases. However, functional rhinoplasty costs less depending on the patient’s conditions.

Takeaways: The Cost of Being Beautiful

Cosmetic rhinoplasty is more than skin-deep, literally. The improvement in self-esteem and confidence outweighs the cost of nose surgery if one can afford it.

Hi everyone! My name is Tami Hudlin – I am the brains behind Club Aesthetics AZ.
