Types of Rhinoplasty

Posted on Oct 29, 2014 Facial Procedures

At Dr. Bottger’s Philadelphia plastic surgery office, every rhinoplasty procedure is catered to your individual needs. With years of experience, Dr. Bottger’s approach and techniques can help you achieve your aesthetic goals both safely and efficiently.

Dr. Bottger performs two main types of rhinoplasty for his Pennsylvania patients. Both procedures involve an incision within the nose and are generally performed with a general anesthesia. Scarring is minimal, though your recovery and your results are greatly dependent upon your individual circumstances.

The two rhinoplasty techniques we offer include:

  1. Closed rhinoplasty – This technique can be utilized to sculpt, reposition and improve contours of the nose
  2. Open rhinoplasty – This approach can provide a more complete visualization for sculpting and repositioning for the tip and dorsal structures

Dr. Bottger will determine the optimal surgical approach for your procedure based on your unique features and individual needs.

Alternatively, if your aim is to achieve both cosmetic and functional improvements, such as relieving breathing problems while also improving the size or shape of the nose, Dr. Bottger can perform a septoplasty procedure in conjunction with your rhinoplasty.

The best way to determine which type of rhinoplasty is right for you is to let Dr. Bottger personally assess your needs and goals during your consultation.
