About Closed Rhinoplasty

There are two basic types of rhinoplasty: open and closed. During an open rhinoplasty, an external incision is made in the columella (the area between the nostrils), whereas during a closed rhinoplasty all incisions are made through the nostrils, inside the nose.

Why Closed Rhinoplasty

There are many advantages to having a closed procedure. Dr. Tobias only performs closed surgeries, there will be no incision made in the columella (the area between the nostrils). Instead, the entire operation will take place through the natural opening of the nostrils.

What is Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, often referred to as a “nose job,” is a surgical procedure typically performed to reshape the nose in order to create facial harmony. The operation may also be performed to correct structural defects that interfere with breathing, eating or sleeping.

Candidates for Rhinoplasty

Once a patient’s facial features have reached maturity, usually about one year after puberty, the patient can be a candidate for rhinoplasty. Ideal candidates for the surgery are healthy adults between the ages of 15 and 80 who do not smoke and who are realistic in their goals for the procedure.

Reasons for Nose Surgery

There are two primary reasons for rhinoplasty, aesthetic and functional, although in many cases both sets of reasons are addressed.

Aesthetic Reasons for Nose Surgery

The procedure can correct existing imperfections or deformities by altering the size and/or symmetry of the nose so that it is in balance with the patient’s other facial features. During the procedure, the surgeon can remove bumps or depressions, widen or narrow the nostrils or bridge, alter an enlarged, bulbous, upturned, hooked or drooping tip, correct flaring or pinched nostrils, alter the angle of the nose relative to the upper lip.

Functional Reasons for Nose Surgery

Because of structural defects, a nose may require a reshaping in order to function properly. Patients may be born with, develop, or acquire through an accident or physical confrontation, nasal defects that that interfere with breathing, eating, or sleeping. For example, Septoplasty is a procedure to correct a deviated septum.
