How is the Surgery Performed?
With an open rhinoplasty procedure, a small incision will be made along the underside of the nose. This allows us to lift the skin up to get a full visualization of the skeletal structure of your nose. All incisions from this point forward are done to the supporting framework; the bone and cartilage of the nose.
The bone may be reshaped and the cartilage may be reduced to create a nose that is in balance with the rest of your face.
A closed rhinoplasty procedure may be done if the alterations are minor and no significant amount of nasal tip adjustment is required.
The surgery length will be approximately 1-3 hours in length unless it is a complicated procedure and general anesthesia will be administered.
