What is Tip Rhinoplasty?

The tip of the nose is surely very characteristic like the nose itself, it means varies from person to person. Concerning the entire nose, it's seen as the most conspicuous area from the outside. Hence, Tip Rhinoplasty is quite common.

The procedure of Tip Rhinoplasty

Tip Rhinoplasty is a popular surgery lastly. It can take thirty minutes to 90 minutes and can be performed either under local anesthesia or general anesthesia depending on the techniques and procedures being used by the doctor. Its procedure usually involved two techniques named open and close. Factors related to the patient and the competence of the doctor both play a decisive role when it comes to choosing one of them.

The first one is "the closed technique" and it involves a cut on the inside of the nostrils. There is no scar after the operation. Using this method also can be shortened the operation time overall.

Another one is "the open" and contains a cut over the skin in between the two nostrils. There may be a scar after that but it can not be noticed perfectly from the outside.
