Closed Technique for Asian Rhinoplasty using Ear Cartilage. Is this right for me?
Doctor Answers 4
Thank you for your question. Many surgeons prefer rhinoplasties because they offer a more detailed and predictable approach to nasal contouring. Always consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon. You can also receive a second opinion during a consultation to compare potential procedure approaches.
Closed vs open
It depends on the experience and preference of your surgeon. Most modern Asian rhinoplasties tend to be performed open and more work can be done to the tip this way

The issue of choosing between a closed technique and open technique is a matter your surgeon's preference, however, in most cases, Asian Rhinoplasty can be done with closed technique, unless its a revision procedure, or it will involve complicated tip work.
