Incisions are made on the nasal mucosa along the edge of the nasal passages in accordance with the previously applied markings. After the skin discission, the alar cartilages are isolated, excess tissues are cut off, if necessary, and a new line of the nasal dorsum is formed. The nasal tip formation during closed rhinoplasty is one of the most difficult parts of the operation. For the best result, multidirectional manipulations can be applied.
For greater accuracy, endoscopic equipment can be implemented in our clinic. At the end of the operation, the wound is sutured with cosmetic stitches, tampons are placed in the nostrils for 1-2 days to support the tissues in the desired shape. For a 1-2-week-long fixation, a special removable plaster cast is applied.
During closed rhinoplasty, the columella vessels cannot be damaged. Due to low trauma risks, rehabilitation takes less time and the postoperative period is easier than after open surgery.
Rehabilitation after closed rhinoplasty
At the first time after the operation, a number of restrictions should be observed. For the first two weeks, you need to exclude sudden head movements and lifting weights. You will have to sleep on your back for a month, and in the first two months, it is better to give up visiting saunas, swimming pools, wearing glasses, and exclude exposure to ultraviolet rays. A person returns to the usual lifestyle, as a rule, after 3-4 weeks. The swelling and hematomas disappear by the end of the second week, but the final result can be evaluated no earlier than six months after the operation
