What is Closed Rhinoplasty?

In simple words, closed rhinoplasty surgery is where the stitches are done inside the nose instead of outside. Another name for this type of surgery is endonasal rhinoplasty. Unlike an open rhinoplasty, with the closed type, there will be no scar that would be visible after the surgery. Therefore many people prefer this type over open rhinoplasty. With the surgery, you can have a transformed nose without any scars or marks. Dr. Kallman at Facemiami conducts a consultation with his patients who want to get rhinoplasty Miami. Since each patient is different with their own nose shape, the consultation will determine which type of rhinoplasty would be more suitable for the patient.

Difference between open and closed rhinoplasty

One of the major differences between closed and open rhinoplasty is the incision. In closed rhinoplasty, the incision is inside the nose and thus cant be seen by anyone. On the other hand, the incision is exteriorly in open rhinoplasty. The decision for each type of surgery is based on the needs of the patient. If the patient does not require major cartilage grafting, then there’s a higher chance of the doctor choosing closed rhinoplasty.


Most surgeons only perform open rhinoplasty on their patients, it has become the more common approach to rhinoplasty and it is what they are more expertly trained to do. This is because open rhinoplasty allows the surgeon to visualize the nasal contours and the cartilage. Thus the surgeon can do the procedure more precisely. With the incision, the doctor peels back the skin in order to see the cartilage more clearly. Dr. Kallman can shape and mould the nose in both open and closed rhinoplasty.

Even though there are fewer doctors and fewer instances where closed rhinoplasty is performed, there are still many benefits associated with this type of surgery.
