Rhinoplasty: The Different Techniques

Rhinoplasty: The Different Techniques

The nose is a key part of the face. A small change in its structure can have a significant impact on our appearance and our self-confidence.

The rhinoplasty is one of the surgeries aesthetic most common currently.

The rhinoplasty is a surgery of the nose to improve its function or to modify its form. Communément called remodelling of the nose, and this surgical procedure improves the nasal morphology. It allows a better harmony and a better balance of the face.

The discomfort felt in the nose can be functional with disturbed breathing or else aesthetic. The aesthetic problem can be located at the bump, tip, wings of the nose or a deviation of the latter.

Each technique has advantages depending on the modifications envisaged.

Open rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty is the most common.

It is recommended for patients:

  • Suffering from nasal deviation, asymmetries or breathing problems.
  • In search of aesthetic improvements: increase/decrease in size, removal of a nasal bump, correction of the tip of the nose.

Closed rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty, also called endonasal rhinoplasty, is performed either under general anaesthesia or under local anaesthesia with sedation.

Incisions inside the nasal cavity sculpt the cartilage and/or bone to the desired end result. This technique leaves no visible scar.

Closed rhinoplasty is for patients who need minor adjustments, especially of the nasal bridge, rather than the tip of the nose.

Medical rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty Medical has the advantage of not requiring surgery. However, it has its limits and will be less effective than surgery for major changes to the nose.

The rhinoplasty medical involves injecting fillers in the nose, primarily hyaluronic acid. It is possible, with this technique, to erase a dorsal bump, harmonize the tip of the nose and in some cases raise the latter a little.

This technique only improves the aesthetic appearance of your nose and is not applicable in all situations.

Results are temporary, on average for up to 24 months. This non-surgical approach can also be a good way to test a nose restructuring procedure before committing to permanent changes and, therefore, surgery.
