Open or closed rhinoplasty is the most frequent debate among aesthetic surgeons. Unfortunately, there is no absolute answer to this question, but anyhow understanding the advantages and disadvantages of each technique can serve as a first step.
During rhinoplasty, excessive nasal bone or cartilage is removed. In some cases, cartilage grafts are added to strengthen and give a new shape to the nose structure. After proper interventions in the cartilage and bone structures have been performed, the nose skin is repositioned in the new nose projection to give the new appearance. Changes may be small or drastic, it depends on the patient’s needs.
