Open Rhinoplasty Technique – San Francisco Nose Surgery

When using the open rhinoplasty technique, your plastic surgeon will create a tiny incision on the columella, which is the external skin that separates the nostrils. The nasal skin can then be lifted, offering a great deal of surgical access to the underlying architecture of the nose.

With the unimpeded view that comes with the open rhinoplasty technique, the plastic surgeon is more able to determine the exact nature of functional issues. They can also better appraise the internal factors that shape the nose’s external appearance.
