Are you interested in rhinoplasty surgery (also known as a nose job), but nervous about having a noticeable scar?
Good news: in most cases, no one will be able to see your rhinoplasty scar. Read on to find out why!
Discover a Scarless Rhinoplasty Procedure
If you only need minor changes to your nose – for example, you want to shave down a bump or minimize an upturned nose – then you may be a good candidate for a closed rhinoplasty procedure. This surgery – which is also referred to as a scarless rhinoplasty procedure – allows your plastic surgeon to make incisions within the nasal passages themselves, meaning there’s no visible scarring whatsoever.
What If I Want More Dramatic Changes?
If you and your plastic surgeon think you’ll benefit from more dramatic changes – like shaving down your nose’s profile or majorly changing its shape – then you may need an open rhinoplasty procedure. This surgery may require better visualization than the scarless rhinoplasty procedure, so your plastic surgeon will likely make incisions outside of the nasal passages to access key areas of the nose.
But don’t worry: the scars from open rhinoplasty surgery are well hidden within the natural curvature of the nostrils. Once these incision scars are faded, they’re practically invisible to the naked eye. If you’re worried about the scars, take a look at our photo gallery or we can provide you with the chance to talk to one of our happy rhinoplasty patients to talk about their experience!
Which Rhinoplasty Procedure is Right for Me?
Not sure if you’re a good candidate for an open or closed rhinoplasty procedure? That’s why it’s important to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Your surgeon will examine your current nose, talk to you about your desired results, and make recommendations about which surgery is right for your needs.
