Open Rhinoplasty (Augmentation)-Part5 contd
Rhinoplasty modifies the functional properties and aesthetic appearance of the nose through operative manipulation of the skin, underlying cartilage, bone, and lining. The incision type that the surgeon uses classifies the Rhinoplasty as open or closed.
In an “open” Rhinoplasty, a small incision is made in the columella, which is the little column of skin that separates the two nostrils. That incision allows the nasal skin to be lifted off of the tip of the nose. That’s the only difference between the two techniques. In both open and closed Rhinoplasty, many other incisions are used up inside of the nose, but the open technique also has that one little extra incision in the base of the nose.
This is a complicated procedure to have and must be carried out only by a highly skilled professional. Open Rhinoplasty is more suited to complicated work as it allows the surgeon greater access to your nose. The skin is lifted back so all of your cartilage and bone is exposed, allowing the surgeon to work easily.
The open technique has huge advantages over the closed technique, in my opinion. The main advantage is that it is much easier for the surgeon to see and work on the nasal tip cartilages in their natural positions. With the skin lifted up, it’s easier for the surgeon to see what needs to be done, and to accomplish those tasks. The little scar heals very well.
