The closed rhinoplasty is a rhinoplasty technique that is performed without incision in the columella. In closed rhinoplasty, there are incisions and sutures in the mucous membranes inside the nose. With closed rhinoplasty, it is possible to reach and shape the entire bone and cartilage structure.
It is possible to perform closed septorhinoplasty by adding septum surgery in the closed surgery technique. The closed rhinoplasty may not be preferred in severely deformed noses that have had previous operations or accidents.
