The nose job has been around for many years, although emerging technology has made the procedure less invasive, with no visible scarring, and if you are interested in having your nose reshaped, here is some detailed information about the various types of rhinoplasty.
- Open Rhinoplasty – Called ‘open’ because the incision is made on the thin, soft strip of tissue between the nostrils, which allows the surgeon access to bone, tissue and cartilage. Whether or not the surgeon recommends open rhinoplasty would depend on the make-up of the nose and the expected results.
- Closed Rhinoplasty – This involves the surgeon making incisions on the inner central surface of the nostril, which, of cause, cannot be seen. This is perhaps the most popular form of rhinoplasty, due to the fact that there’s no visible scarring, although the surgeon might recommend open rhinoplasty, if he feels it would give the best results.
- Natural Rhinoplasty – This means there are no foreign substances used in the process, rather the surgeon might merely manipulate cartilage to slightly alter the shape of the nose. Grafts can be taken from other areas of the body, if bone needs to be added, and if this was recommended, the surgeon would explain the procedure in detail. At this present time, natural nose surgery (known as เสริมจมูกธรรมชาติ in Thai) is very popular, as people prefer natural solutions, and without the use of foreign substances, there’s no risk of rejection.
