Closed Rhinoplasty to reshape the nasal tip.
If you’re looking to reshape the nasal tip without lots of healing and post Rhinoplasty swelling, then you should consider a Closed Rhinoplasty with a retrograde Tip-plasty. In this technique, I make an incision inside the nose and back dissect over the top portion of the nasal tip. The excess tip cartilage is removed and the incision is closed with dissolveable sutures. This slick techniques has the following advantages:
1. Minimal dissection which means less bruising and swelling after the Rhinoplasty.
2. No cast is required or any sort of packing in the nose…in fact, I don’t use any packing in Rhinoplasty surgeries for the past 15 years or so. It’s not necessary and is very uncomfortable for patients after their Rhinoplasty.
3. This technique will thin the nasal tip without the risk of making the tip too small, pinched, or over-rotated.
I’ve done this Rhinoplasty technique on TV stars that were able to return to work, on the set, the following week without anyone knowing they had a Rhinoplasty. Now you know the secrets, the Celebrities know.
