    Hump Removal Using Open and Closed Rhinoplasty Techniques

    There are two common types of rhinoplasty that are categorized based on the incisions that are made during the surgery. The nasal tip can be surgically reshaped by using both open and closed rhinoplasty surgery.

    1. Open rhinoplasty

    Open rhinoplasty generally involves the incisions in the soft tissue between your nostrils. Open rhinoplasty helps in visualizing the cartilages directly unlike the closed rhinoplasty.

    In cases, where a larger reduction of the hump is required, open rhinoplasty is preferred.The remodeling of the tip can be done easily using open rhinoplasty. More aesthetically balanced results will be seen using this cosmetic surgery procedure.

    1. Closed rhinoplasty

    Closed rhinoplasty also helps in reshaping the nasal tip and removal or correction of the nasal hump. During closed rhinoplasty, incisions are made inside your nostril. Closed rhinoplasty requires decreased operative time and early postoperative healing.

    Scars will not be visible in closed rhinoplasty when compared to open rhinoplasty. When the nasal hump is small, it can be treated using closed rhinoplasty. All the incisions are made inside your nostrils. Closed rhinoplasty for hump removal does not require the redraping of the skin or the open the nose to correct the nasal hump.

    Closed rhinoplasty is generally preferred in cases when the hump is formed due to the presence of an excess of cartilage in the dorsum. The hump can be trimmed easily with the help of this rhinoplasty procedure.

    Before the rhinoplasty surgery, you need to discuss the appropriate method suitable for your nose and how it will compliment your facial features. Nose job and nose reshaping are common to achieve a perfect nose shape.
