There are various types of cosmetic rhinoplasty procedures, and every patient has different goals. For these reasons, each procedure will be thoroughly individualized based on the patient’s needs.
As a rhinoplasty specialist with nearly a decade of experience in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, Dr. Sedgh has extensive expertise in all types of nose reshaping and reconstruction techniques. He uses both the closed approach and the open approach, but chooses the most appropriate one based on the patient’s goals and what makes sense for the complexity of the surgery.
Closed Approach (Endonasal Rhinoplasty)
This approach involves making precise incisions inside the nostrils to reshape the nose. It is a common technique for primary rhinoplasty procedures that require simple or minimal changes. Since there are no visible incisions on the outer part of the nose, the advantage with this approach is that there will be no external scarring.
Open Approach (External Rhinoplasty)
With the open approach, an incision is made along the partition between the nostrils, also known as the columella. The skin is then carefully folded upward to expose the nasal framework, providing optimum visibility throughout the procedure. This approach is preferred for more complex enhancements and reconstructions, as it provides a better visual of the entire nasal structure and ensures maximum precision.
Dr. Sedgh employs an artful and meticulous approach to achieve your desired results while still maintaining the structural integrity of the nose. Each surgery is performed with the utmost care to ensure that the outcome is as natural as possible, with little to no visible scarring.
