Closed Rhinoplasty: A Revolutionary Technique for Natural-Looking Results

When it comes to plastic surgery of the face, Dr. Karan Chopra is a renowned expert in the field. With over 10+ years of experience and a track record of 500+ happy patients, he is known for his revolutionary techniques that yield natural-looking results unique to each patient. One of the procedures he specializes in is closed rhinoplasty.

What is Closed Rhinoplasty?

Closed rhinoplasty, also known as endonasal rhinoplasty, is a surgical procedure that focuses on reshaping the nose from within. Unlike open rhinoplasty, which involves making an external incision across the columella (the strip of tissue between the nostrils), closed rhinoplasty utilizes incisions made inside the nostrils. This approach offers several advantages, including:

  • Minimal scarring: Since all incisions are made internally, there are no visible scars on the outside of the nose.
  • Reduced swelling and bruising: The absence of external incisions leads to less trauma to the nasal tissues, resulting in reduced swelling and bruising.
  • Faster recovery: Patients who undergo closed rhinoplasty typically experience a quicker recovery time compared to open rhinoplasty.
  • Preservation of nasal support structures: The closed technique allows for precise reshaping of the nose while preserving the underlying nasal support structures.

The Closed Rhinoplasty Procedure

During a closed rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Chopra carefully makes incisions inside the nostrils to access the nasal structures. Through these incisions, he can reshape the nasal bones, cartilage, and soft tissues to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome. The procedure may involve techniques such as osteotomies (controlled fractures of the nasal bones), cartilage grafting, and tip refinement.

Dr. Chopra’s meticulous attention to detail ensures that the results of closed rhinoplasty are natural-looking and harmonious with the patient’s facial features. He takes into account the patient’s unique nasal anatomy, skin thickness, and desired outcome to create a personalized surgical plan.

Benefits and Considerations

Closed rhinoplasty offers several benefits for patients seeking nasal refinement. These include:

  • Minimal scarring
  • Reduced swelling and bruising
  • Faster recovery time
  • Precise reshaping while preserving nasal support structures

However, it’s important to note that closed rhinoplasty may not be suitable for all patients. The technique is best suited for individuals who require minor to moderate changes to the nasal structure and have good nasal support. Patients with more complex nasal deformities or those requiring extensive reconstruction may benefit from open rhinoplasty.
