Many of our patients come in specifically for nasal tip reshaping. This aspect of rhinoplasty surgery is focused on the tip of the nose.
When nasal tip reshaping is the goal during your rhinoplasty procedure, your surgeon will most likely be implementing the open rhinoplasty technique. This incision technique is perfect for affording your surgeon access to the nasal tip cartilage. Once access has been created, it will be easier to see the exact nature of the issues. The nasal tip cartilage will then typically be carefully altered to resculpt the tip of the nose.
Open rhinoplasty is a technique used during rhinoplasty surgery. When a surgeon needs a greater degree of access to the patient’s underlying nasal tissues, they may choose this technique over others, such as closed rhinoplasty and non-surgical nose reshaping.
Complex surgical solutions typically necessitate the open rhinoplasty approach. One example of a complex nasal procedure would be any kind of revision rhinoplasty – surgery meant to correct problems stemming from a past rhinoplasty procedure. Any rhinoplasty meant to augment and bolster the internal structure of the nose would also benefit from the open technique.
