What is the difference between opened and closed rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty is a work on the appearance of the nose and its correction. Open and closed rhinoplasty are the two main types of surgery to correct aesthetic nose defects. These defects may be a long tip of the nose, a hump, the consequences of fractures, nasal breathing, asymmetry etc.  Each of these types differs in their method of carrying out the surgery. What are the pros and cons of each of the types? Which one is better?

An open type means that incisions are made both inside the nose and on the soft tissue between the nostrils. After this, the skin fold in the form of a triangle turns away to the nose bridge and the surgeon gets an opportunity to work directly with the bone and cartilage departments. Closed type means that incisions are made inside the nasal passages of the patient. Visible skin remains untouched. Often the decision in favor of open nose plastic surgery is done depending on how much the plastic surgeon wants to ensure the maximum degree of accuracy of the operation, as well as its predictability and the sustainability of the result.

Is a rhinoplasty painful?

The minus of open rhinoplasty is a small incision of 4-5 mm in the nose (between the nostrils). A small scar remains on the site of the columella incision, which can be painful, itchy, or has increased sensitivity within a few months after the operation. The advantage of open type is the full availability of internal structures of the nose for accurate diagnosis of their condition, determining the true causes of aesthetic defects and their correction. Closed rhinoplasty requires high qualification of the surgeon for the correction of essential defects. The huge plus of closed method is no visible scars. In addition, the duration of the operation (1-2 hours) compared with open access (2-4 hours). After a closed-type rhinoplasty, rehabilitation is easier.
