Methods of surgical Rhinoplasty VS non-surgical Rhinoplasty

Open Rhinoplasy:

During the open Rhinoplasty the cut is made to allow the skin to be lifted so the plastic surgeon is able see the entire area.

This incision allows the nasal skin to be perfectly lifted and viewed all the major structures of the nose, including the bone, cartilage and soft tissue therefore the surgery will be performed under direct vision.

There will not any scar left provided that it is done by the experienced surgeon.

It should be borne in mind that cutting or not cutting the nostrils is not related to open or closed method while it depends on the size of the nostrils, meaning that if the nostrils are large and abnormal and necessary to get smaller and tighter is no way but to cut them, even if the surgery is closed.

Closed Rhinoplasy:

In the closed method, all incisions are made inside the nose,

The skin is then severely separated from the bony cartilage below.

The skin separated is held up by special equipment to allow the surgeon to work.

As a result, the binocular vision of the surgeon in this procedure is limited.

Closed nose job has been the second choice of plastic surgeons for many years and open nose cosmetic surgery is preferred because of its more advantages.

But there are also benefits to the closed method that for some cases a cosmetologist still chooses it. These benefits include:

  • The operation time in this method is about a quarter less than the open method
  • There is no cut on the skin

In this method, the nasal tip swelling is less than the technique so the swelling will be resolved sooner..


This method is done in three key steps:

  1. The nose gets numb through local anesthesia injection or anesthetic cream.
  2. Filler solution is prepared by an expert.
  3. Filler is injected directly into the designated points of the nose. Some specialists, according to the technique is used, massage the nasal area as soon as the filler is injected in order to give the nose the desired shape.

Lifting thread:

The second case of non-surgical nasal surgery is the use of an absorbent lifting thread to lift the nasal tip.

For this purpose, after local anesthesia, the physician inserts the lifting threads into the nose

And with this simple operation, the nose tip is raised

And, of course, for a desired outcome, the patient needs to wait several months for the threads to reach their final result.

The procedure lasts about two to three years and then although the nose does not completely fall off as before surgery, it should be repeated every few years

Plasma jet:

Plasma jet foe meaty nose is often performed when the purpose is to lift and make the nose smaller.

The way it works is through the plasma of the nose, the skin of the nose is burned together as tiny dots.

The depth of this burn seems less than what actually happened.

After the nasal jet plasma and the recovery time have passed, the nasal skin becomes slightly tighter and the nose appears smaller.

But what is the main use of nasal jet plasma? Nasal jet plasma is most commonly used for people with a fleshy nose and is not recommended for people with a bony nose.
