An open rhinoplasty is a very popular and common surgery that significantly corrects the functional properties and the aesthetic appearance of the nose giving the whole face a more balanced and well-proportioned look. The doctor chooses an open rhinoplasty method when she wishes to correct the middle part and the tip of the nose. This technique includes an incision on the columella -the tissue between the nostrils – on the outer part of the nose and gives the doctor a better view of the anatomy of the nose. There is also the closed rhinoplasty technique that involves inscisions in the inner part of the nose. The doctor chooses the best technique depending on the case and the particular needs of each patient.
