Open Rhinoplasty


Open rhinoplasty offers more possibilities than the closed version. It is usually recommended when the desired correction includes an intervention on the tip of the nose, because the cartilaginous structures are more visible.

The Intervention

The nose operation takes an average of two hours, under general anaesthesia.

Results and Post-Operative Treatment

After the operation, packs are placed in the nose in order to prevent bleeding.

Bruises appear during the 48 hours after the intervention.

A plaster splint and a dressing must be kept in place for seven days.

Social activities can usually be resumed after two weeks.

The stitches under the nose are removed after four to five days. The nose operation leaves virtually no scars.
