Nose Surgery or Rhinoplasty in medical term is a surgical procedure commonly minor operation for implant insertion or close rhinoplasty and major operation for open rhinoplasty for nasal bridge reduction. The requirement for the type of surgery relies on the nasal condition and the patient’s desired outcome.

Minor surgery rhinoplasty requires only local anesthesia to numb the nasal area and the surgeon will start to make incision to get an access to the nasal bridge and cartilage.  The incision will be hidden inside the nostrils to leave no visible scars after.

Usually Open rhinoplasty procedures are mosty major surgery which entreats general anesthesia as this procedure would be more likely aggressive. The incision is at the Columella   (middle cartilage dividing the nostrils) to have an access to the nasal bridge and cartilage. Expect to have a scar after the surgery, although the scar will be little and can be covered by some makeup and scar gel remedies.
