Rhinoplasty can be performed either via a closed or open approach. The closed, or endonasal method, has no external scars. All the incisions to access the items to be reshaped are internal. This method is indicated in patients that have minimal to moderate deformities and have not had previous surgery.
The open rhinoplasty will leave a usually imperceptible scar across the columella between the nostrils. This method is used for cases that are more complex or in patients that have had previous rhinoplasty.
Rhinoplasty typically requires one and one half to two and one half hours to complete. A splint is placed on the nose to stabilize the changes made during the surgery. You may have packing in each nostril. Bruising is not uncommon. Final results typically require 6-12 months of healing and softening.
