If undergoing open rhinoplasty, there will be a single horizontal scar connecting the two nostrils. If nostril narrowing is added, those scars are external also. In closed rhinoplasty, the nostril narrowing, if performed, will be the only external scar. The other incisions are performed internally. What may be unique to the Asian rhinoplasty done via the closed rhinoplasty technique is that the two horseshoe-shaped tip cartilages may be “worked on”, by the “delivery technique.” Through additional internal incisions, the two cartilages are “delivered” from their bed between the external and internal skin, worked on, on the outside of nose while still attached and then returned to the bed, narrower and shorn of the extra fat. Quite something to observe! Learn more about open vs closed rhinoplasty.
