Rhinoplasty surgeries are one of the most common procedures in America. Whether for injury or cosmetic purposes, rhinoplasties continue to be sought out by people everywhere. Let’s dive into the different types of rhinoplasty surgeries and the ideal candidates for a procedure.
Rhinoplasty surgery, commonly called a nose job, is sought out to reduce humps, bulbous tips, wide tips, straighten bridges, and overall make one’s nose more proportional to their facial features. A closed rhinoplasty does not require an external incision.
It is known to cause less swelling. However, the lack of exposure does not allow much cartilage modification that you would be able to do in an open rhinoplasty.
An open rhinoplasty requires a small incision at the base of the nose. The rate of revision is not nearly as high as that of closed rhinoplasties. However, the main drawback is the higher amount of swelling in comparison.
The ideal candidate for a rhinoplasty procedure is a person that knows what they want. Whether the reason for the procedure is to restore confidence, fix breathing issues, or any other reason, it’s helpful for a patient to come in with clear wants and needs.
