There are two main approaches to rhinoplasty, open and closed. Open rhinoplasty has a tiny incision at the base of the columella, while closed rhinoplasty has only internal incisions within the nostrils. Dr. Saigal prefers the endonasal approach used in closed rhinoplasty, which not only guarantees a scarless nose job but also reduces downtime and discomfort. However, if indicated, Dr. Saigal is an experienced Rhinoplasty specialist who can perform open (external) Rhinoplasty surgery as well.

What is closed rhinoplasty?

With closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made within the nasal cavity. The bone and cartilage are reshaped from within the nose, requiring a highly skilled surgeon with a good understanding of anatomical structure. An endoscope may be used to enhance accuracy.

Closed rhinoplasty has several unique advantages, which include a shorter surgery time, improved circulation to the nasal tip, reduced swelling, a more natural-looking outcome, and expedited recovery. The drawback is that this approach requires significant skill, dexterity, and precision to achieve strategic results. Dr. Saigal is an expert in the closed technique and has been performing them for years in both cosmetic and functional nasal surgeries with remarkable outcomes.

What is open rhinoplasty?

With open rhinoplasty, an incision is made at the base of the nose and the nasal skin is separated from the bone and cartilage, exposing the bridge and the septum. This allows the surgeon a full visual of the nasal structures, as well as ample access to the nasal tip cartilage.

It is ideal for placing grafts when augmenting a flat nose. The open rhinoplasty technique is suited to more difficult surgeries, as in the case of revision rhinoplasty. Its disadvantages include the possibility of prolonged nasal swelling, the possibility of a visible scar (although this is very rare), and a more lengthy surgery time.
