Abstract

Open versus closed approach in rhinoplasty is a frequently debated topic in aesthetic plastic surgery. Although good results can often be achieved with either technique, both have unique advantages and disadvantages. In this investigation we present our experiences of a modified closed-open approach which has been applied on 482 complex primary and secondary rhinoplasties. Three representative cases are described in more detail. Surgical method: The procedure begins as a closed approach through a intracartilaginous incision allowing cephalic trimming of the lateral crura, dorsal rasping and/or excision. Patients requiring extensive nasal tip maneuvers are subjected to exposure of the alar cartilage framework through a transcolumellar/limited marginal incision. This provides not only adequate exposure of the alar cartilages but also easy access to the septum. In our hands this approach is easy and expeditious. It requires less tip dissection, and therefore may avoid the prolonged postoperative edema which is often a consequence of open or extended closed tip delivery approaches.
