Which is Better- Open or Closed Rhinoplasty?
My son's nose has a bump (which he doesn't mind). He doesn't like that the hump protrudes on each side, and the front hangs down slightly. He would like the sides to be smooth, to keep the bump, and to lift what is hanging down. He has seen two doctors, one who does closed and one open rhinoplasty. The one who does the open says it is easier for him to see to leave what we want on the bridge. Both say he needs the whole thing done for balance- if they just shave the sides it will look wide.
