Closed rhinoplasty may be recommended for aesthetic or medical reasons. These can include:
- dissatisfaction with the appearance of the nose and the desire to change its shape or size;
- problems with nasal breathing associated with a deviation of the nasal septum or an overgrown mucosa;
- congenital and acquired deformities of the nose.
Closed rhinoplasty is preferable in terms of low tissue trauma, as well as a shorter recovery period.
Despite the low trauma level, closed rhinoplasty is a surgical intervention, so, as with any operation, there are a number of contraindications:
- severe chronic diseases, including diabetes;
- oncological pathologies;
- blood-clotting disorder;
- the presence of an inflammatory or infectious process in the body;
- pregnancy and lactation period.
In addition, for complex and extensive defects, open surgery may be recommended for some patients instead of closed rhinoplasty.
