What types of surgery are there?
Closed rhinoplasty: Closed rhinoplasty today is shown as the intervention most demanded and most carried out, given the good results it offers without opening your nose at any time. The closed ensures that there will be no scar left on the outside. It is carried out directly through the holes of the nose. Which are shown as the way to manipulate the different bones and cartilages of the nose to achieve the desired appearance by the patient, without leaving any trace of any intervention.
Open rhinoplasty: there are times when there is no other option than performing an open rhinoplasty. Here a small incision is made in the skin between the tip and the base of the nose. In order to separate it from the bone structure. Once everything has been repositioned to the patient’s pleasure, to finish it is a small suture that is barely perceptible and that goes completely unnoticed.
