Patients who are not entirely happy with the shape of their noses or who have been injured in the past may require surgery to get them looking their best. With a Newport Beach Open Rhinoplasty, Dr. Tavoussi will be able to clearly visualize the nasal structures and make changes to the bones and cartilage of the nose. An open rhinoplasty is done to change the shape, size or structure of a major part of the nose, such as the tip or bridge.
The two most common rhinoplasty techniques are closed and open rhinoplasties. The one chosen will depend on the surgeon’s preference as well as the desired treatment area. For example, while the closed rhinoplasty may be frequently used for minor changes to the structure of the nose, an open rhinoplasty is often the best choice for working with the tip of the nose. The open version provides easier access for the surgeon to the underlying structures of the nose to eliminate guessing and to provide a better overall look upon recovery.
While some Newport Beach patients may be concerned about the need for a visible incision, they should know that these incisions heal quite well and are usually invisible to the naked eye after complete healing. Plus, the results that they get are well worth this added work. A Newport Beach open rhinoplasty can change the entire shape of the nasal tip and can be used for more advanced needs of the bridge of the nose. For example, patients may be able to have the following concerns treated.
- A crooked nose bridge
- Bumps on the nose bridge
- A prominent nose
- Asymmetrical facial features
- Poor breathing from blocked nasal passages
