What is Closed Rhinoplasty
Closed Rhinoplasty New York - This young female patient discusses her closed rhinoplasty procedure by New York facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Andrew Jacono.
A closed rhinoplasty or endonasal rhinoplasty involves making the incisions inside of the nose. By doing this approach, there will be no visible scar that is normally seen when an open rhinoplasty is performed. Depending upon how the consultation with Dr. Jacono goes and based on what final outcome you are looking for; Dr. Jacono will determine if the procedure will be done as an open rhinoplasty or a closed rhinoplasty.
There are a few differences between the open rhinoplasty and closed rhinoplasty surgeries. As mentioned above, one of the biggest differences is that no exterior incision is made to perform the procedure. Dr. Jacono performs nose job surgery closed or open depending upon what changes the patient requires. If less cartilage grafting is required, he often does the surgery closed.
Most surgeons only perform open rhinoplasty surgeries in the United States as it has become the mainstream of training in the US. The reason for this shift in training stems from being able to easily see the nasal contours and cartilage when an open or external is being performed. When the incision is made the surgeon peels back the nasal skin and the full view of the nasal cartilage will be visible. Dr Jacono can manipulate the tip both in open and closed rhinoplasty surgeries.
Even though they happen less frequently, there are still some strong advantages to having a closed procedure.
Advantages to Closed Rhinoplasty Surgery
While there is a lot of confusion as to what surgical approach you should consider, there are a few advantages to a closed rhinoplasty that patients may wish to consider.
- No noticeable external scar
- Less post-operative tip swelling
- Better nasal tip support
- Shorter operating time and thus less anesthesia
- Return to more normal appearance much sooner
Closed rhinoplasties require the surgeon to be highly skilled with working in limited visibility and small spaces. Expert surgeons such as Dr Jacono can perform both types of rhinoplasty procedures based on patient needs and should be discussed as an option during your consultation.
