Rhinoplasty Definitions

Rhinoplasty Definitions

Let’s begin with basic definitions – A closed rhinoplasty is a rhinoplasty that involves incisions inside the nose. An open rhinoplasty is a rhinoplasty case that involves an incision in the collumella area, or the area of skin between the nostrils on both sides. One or the other approach is done for rhinoplasty depending on the examination and extent of the rhinoplasty.

  1. Rhinoplasty is great for people that have problems breathing or have insecurities with how their nose looks. My brother had the procedure done a few years ago. It really has helped him with his confidence. http://www.wmparell.com/Eyelid-Surgery-Lexington-KY.html
