One of two techniques can be utilized in performing any type of cosmetic or functional rhinoplasty—the closed (endonasal) approach and the open (external) approach. There are also a variety of anesthetic options that can be utilized for the procedure, including local anesthesia, IV sedation, and general anesthesia. Based on the complexity of the surgery and the surgical enhancements required, Dr. Sedgh will select the most optimum approach and anesthetic option for your needs.
Closed rhinoplasty is performed by making small incisions inside the nostrils through which the inner nasal structure will be adjusted to achieve the desired result. This technique is often preferred by patients as it leaves no visible scarring, but it is only recommended for minor enhancements due to the limited view that it provides the surgeon.
For cases that require major cosmetic or reconstructive alterations, an open rhinoplasty is considered the ideal route. It allows maximum visibility of the internal nasal structure, which means that any enhancements that require the utmost precision can be performed with complete accuracy.
To perform this technique, a small incision will be made along the columella, which is the tissue that connects the nostrils. The skin will then be lifted up to provide optimum access to the nasal framework underneath.
Dr. Sedgh may also use tip refinement, alarplasty, cartilage grafts, and a variety of other techniques to further improve the appearance of the nose.
