How does a closed rhinoplasty work? Through research of rhinoplasty options, you may come across two types of procedures: closed rhinoplasty and open rhinoplasty. Typically, when an individual is looking to change the physical structure of their nose they think of an open rhinoplasty. In this procedure the entire inner anatomy of the nose is exposed, or “opened,” to the surgeon to make alterations. However, what many individuals are not aware of is another rhinoplasty procedure, closed rhinoplasty.
But some patients may not be comfortable with the process that an extensive procedure such as open rhinoplasty brings. Some may just want to avoid the potential scaring that comes with open rhinoplasty. How can a surgeon even perform surgery on a “closed” nose?
So how does closed rhinoplasty work? In closed rhinoplasty, the inner anatomy of a nose is not fully exposed. Closed rhinoplasty involves making incisions within the inner nostrils. Where open rhinoplasty involves an external incision between the two nostrils, closed rhinoplasty does not involve this incision, thus avoids any potential scaring. It takes an extremely skilled surgeon to perform a successful closed rhinoplasty, a procedure that Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Deepak Dugar has dedicated his career to. As a closed rhinoplasty specialist, Dr. Dugar solely performs closed rhinoplasty. His precision and dedication to the procedure brings in patients from all over the world looking for an enhanced, more balanced facial harmony.
Most closed rhinoplasty procedures are performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. Dr. Dugar makes two incisions, each on the mucosa of the inside of the nose. These incisions are used as the gateway to the remaining infrastructure of the nasal anatomy. Through these incisions Dr. Dugar aims to achieve a natural, enhanced version of his patient’s nose. Any bumps on the bridge of the nose can be filed or shaved down giving an improved side profile. Wide noses can be narrowed as well. In addition to decreasing the overall size of the tip of the tip of the nose, Dr. Dugar can add definition as well. Furthermore, Dr. Dugar sees many patients with breathing troubles. Even through closed rhinoplasty, Dr. Dugar can straighten your septum to improve breathing. At the end of the procedure, Dr.Dugar carefully closes the incisions inside the nose. However, since they are inside the nose there is absolutely no scaring! With his natural results, no one will know his patient had a rhinoplasty unless the patient themselves tells them.
For the right candidates, closed rhinoplasty is a great option for patients looking to achieve a naturally new nose. However, if during a consultation Dr. Dugar determines that an individual is not a good fit for the procedure, he will advise against his services. As a surgeon who values honesty and transparency with his patients, Dr. Dugar values the patient’s desires and safety above all else and will only operate if it is right for the patient. A consultation with the right surgeon is the best way to learn more about closed rhinoplasty, and if the procedure is right for you.
