Is it true that revision rhinoplasty is usually performed with an open technique and why? Is it ever possible to use a closed technique? I need a revision rhinoplasty procedure to fix some issues with the tip of my nose but I’d really like to keep the scarring to a minimum.
Open and closed rhinoplasty can be used for primary as well as revision rhinoplasty. It just depends on the issue being addressed and the surgeon’s skill and preference. Both are good techniques when individualized for the unique patient’s nasal deformity.
