Closed Rhinoplasty Surgery

Closed rhinoplasty surgery in Atlanta is performed to correct aesthetic or functional nose concerns without requiring an external incision. When compared to open rhinoplasty, closed rhinoplasty is less invasive, however open rhinoplasty allows our surgeons to see further into the underlying bone and cartilage structure of the nose. Closed rhinoplasty can correct a bulbous tip, dorsal hump, nose asymmetries, septum deviation, and more. At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer closed rhinoplasty surgery to improve the appearance of the nose without leaving any scars behind.

What Is Closed Rhinoplasty?

The size, shape, and position of the nose plays an important role in the aesthetic appearance of the face. Closed rhinoplasty surgery is a less invasive approach to traditional nose surgery. Closed rhinoplasty can address a variety of cosmetic and functional nose concerns, including, but not limited to, decreasing nose size, reducing nasal tip, correcting breathing issues, and straightening the bridge. Closed rhinoplasty surgery does not alter the underlying bone and cartilage structure of the nose, it simply refines the outward appearance.

Closed rhinoplasty differs from open rhinoplasty because it is less invasive and requires minimal incisions. However, unlike open rhinoplasty, closed rhinoplasty does not allow our facial plastic surgeons to reconstruct the inner workings of the nose. Closed rhinoplasty surgery is often referred to as “scarless” rhinoplasty, as the incisions being placed inside the nose, leaving any scars undetectable.

What Are The Benefits Of Closed Rhinoplasty?

Closed rhinoplasty surgery can provide patients with a variety of life-changing benefits. Not only can closed rhinoplasty address cosmetic concerns, but functional concerns as well. Closed rhinoplasty surgery can correct a deviated septum, improve breathing, reduce nose size, and improve nose asymmetry. The results of closed rhinoplasty surgery are long-lasting and natural-looking.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Closed Rhinoplasty?

At Astra Plastic Surgery, we offer closed rhinoplasty surgery for both men and women in Atlanta. During your consultation for closed rhinoplasty, Dr. Killingsworth and his skilled team of plastic surgery professionals will physically exam your nose and review your health history to help determine whether or not you are a candidate for closed rhinoplasty surgery. If you are a candidate, our facial plastic surgeons will develop a specialized treatment plan to meet your individual aesthetic goals.

The ideal candidate for closed rhinoplasty is in good general health and a non-smoker. Additionally, it is important that patients opting for rhinoplasty surgery have realistic expectations for their results. Patients should keep in mind that what looks good on someone else may not fit their own facial profile and personal anatomy.

What Should I Expect During Closed Rhinoplasty?

Closed rhinoplasty surgery is performed under general anesthesia at Astra Plastic Surgery. During closed rhinoplasty, our facial plastic surgeons will make incisions inside the nostrils. From these incisions, your surgeon will be able to begin separating the skin from the cartilage and reshaping the nose.

Following closed nose surgery, a splint will be applied, and the area will be dressed. Although procedure times vary based on the patient’s goals, the anatomy of their nose, and more, a typical closed rhinoplasty procedure takes anywhere from 1 to 2 hours to complete.

What Should I Expect After Closed Rhinoplasty?

Following closed rhinoplasty surgery, patients may experience mild to moderate swelling and bruising. However, these symptoms are normal and will continue to subside in the days and weeks following the procedure. In most cases, your nasal splints can be removed during your first follow-up appointment at our office. Our staff at Astra Plastic Surgery is available to answer any questions you may have during your recovery period.

Before sending you home, Dr. Killingsworth and his staff of plastic surgeons will provide detailed aftercare instructions that are important to follow. Following these instructions carefully will minimize the recovery time and allow patients to achieve optimal results. Patients should avoid rigorous activity and ensure they keep their head elevated following the operation to reduce swelling. Additionally, patients should refrain from swimming and wearing glasses to lessen the risk of infection.




What Results Should I Expect From Closed Rhinoplasty?

Immediately after undergoing closed rhinoplasty surgery, patients may have a difficult time visualizing their final results because of the splints and dressings covering the area. However, as time progresses and swelling subsides, patients will notice the shape of their new nose becoming more defined. The full results of closed rhinoplasty surgery may not be noticeable until 6-12 months after surgery. Patients who undergo closed rhinoplasty to correct a deviated septum can notice improved breathing immediately.

During your consultation for closed rhinoplasty surgery in Atlanta, Dr. Killingsworth and his surgical team will discuss your expected results based on many factors. It is important to note that every patient will have different rhinoplasty results based on their aesthetic goals and individual anatomy.

How Much Does Closed Rhinoplasty In Atlanta Cost?
