Rhinoplasty Surgery Procedure: Step by Step

In open rhinoplasty, the surgeon lifts the nasal skin by making several incisions around the nostrils and under the septum. After changing the nasal bridge shape and fins, he backs the nasal skin and closes the incisions. In closed rhinoplasty, the surgeon makes an incision inside the nostrils and doesn't lift the nasal skin. An open nose job results are more prominent than a closed rhinoplasty, but it involves prolonged recovery and more scarring.
