An Orange County Closed Rhinoplasty is a great way for individuals to get the perfectly shaped noses of their dreams without any visible incisions or scars. This procedure is also called an endonasal rhinoplasty and is significantly different from the external approach or open rhinoplasty. With the open rhinoplasty, incisions are made outside the nostrils, and scars may be visible after the incisions heal.
Many cosmetic surgeons in the United States provide only open rhinoplasties, but Dr. Tavoussi understands that patients are concerned about their appearances post-surgery. A closed rhinoplasty allows him to change the shape of the tip of the nose and even the bridge of the nose. It takes a very skilled surgeon to perform an Orange County Closed Rhinoplasty, and Dr. Tavoussi has the experience and training needed to perform this procedure with precision.
An Orange County closed rhinoplasty is a major surgical procedure that will require general anesthesia. However, it is done in an outpatient surgical center, allowing the patient to return home that night. As with the open rhinoplasty, patients will need to follow specific postoperative instructions, such as keeping the head elevated while sleeping, avoiding blowing the nose and cleaning carefully around the incisions. Dr. Tavoussi will be able to check how the patient is feeling and how the incisions are healing at a follow-up appointment several days following the procedure.
