Rhinoplasty Types

This will provide the surgeon with complete access to the nasal structure for sculpting the nose into a desired shape.

This approach is commonly used by patients that require minor adjustments to the nasal structure for achieving their desired improvements. There is no visible scarring in a closed rhinoplasty.
