Frequently Asked Questions
There are two types of approaches in nose aesthetic surgery, the open and closed approach. In closed surgery, no incision of any kind is relevant from outside. My preference has always been for open rhinoplasty. In open surgeries, an incision is made over the bar we call the columella between the two nostrils. The reason I prefer this approach is that I am more dominant during the surgery over the nose bone and, more importantly, being able to use the Piezzo, an ultrasonic bone-shaping device. The recovery of the wound made in the region where the incision is made is fully completed in 12 months. The stitches melt away by the 10th day. This region may vary from person to person but a scar is generally not visible to the naked eye. But it can be noticed with difficulty under a lens. But it could be visible to the naked eye in rare patients with poor wound recovery.
You can see the wound improvement in the sixth month after the surgery in the photograph.
