Rhinoplasty in Dubai is a surgical procedure for altering the shape of the nose, the procedure can be of great help for the people who want to change the shape of their nose. There are two types of rhinoplasties. Closed rhinoplasty and Open rhinoplasty. People usually get confused when it comes to telling difference between the two. We will explain the difference in detail below.

Open rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty is also called external rhinoplasty uses bridging incision. The basic principle of both these procedure is same the difference lies in the incision made to perform the procedure. This type of rhinoplasty use bridging incision also known as trans-columellar incision to connect the incision of left and right nostril. Making this type of incision will allow the surgeon to fold the nostrils to a new shape which will give more excess to the surgeon to perform more detailed surgery due to increased visibility provided by underlying nostril structure.

Due to the incision, more access is given to the cartilage of nose which improves the accuracy while the surgeon reshapes the nose. This gives the surgeon the freedom to give the desired contours to your nose which wouldn’t be possible with close technique. This type of treatment decreases the chance of cartilage distortion and helps in correcting the tip of your nose to the desired shape by utilizing grafting or suturing technique.

Close rhinoplasty

It is also known as Endonasal rhinoplasty. In this type of procedure, the surgeon will make a parallel incision which will encircle half of the nostril linings doing so allow access to the underlying bone structure. The biggest advantage that this procedure has is the incision that is made inside the nostril thus making it invisible. This treatment is less invasive compared to open rhinoplasty which makes its recovery time shorter.

In this type of treatment, the incision of left and right nostrils remains disconnected which makes the repositioning of nasal skin difficult. The entire operation is conducted through a narrow opening limit the access and visibility of the inner nose difficult. Due to the lower accessibility skin will be stretched to reach the inner parts of the nose which increases chances of cartilage distortion. It also limits the correct reshaping of the tip to be performed.


The type of rhinoplasty chosen will depend upon the natural anatomy as well as the results that the person expects from the procedure. A Close rhinoplasty is a good option because it creates scar inside the nose which is not visible. However, if you need more accurate results then open rhinoplasty is the best option for you because it will allow better accessibility and freedom to the surgeon. Many of the most effective techniques used in the procedure can only be performed through open rhinoplasty.
