In closed surgery, fewer changes are made to the nose and the operation is lighter than in open surgery. In this type of operation, the incisions are hidden inside the nose and are usually performed on an outpatient basis. Another method is revision surgery. In this procedure, the entire strip of thin tissue that separates the nostrils (septum) is cut, and a small incision is seen under the nose from the outside. Through this incision, the skin that covers the bones and cartilage of the nose is gently lifted so that the surgeon can rearrange and redesign the bones and cartilage under the skin.
  3.  Deformation of the structure of the nose: In the process of rhinoplasty, even for large noses, the surgeon may need extra cartilage to transplant the nose. This cartilage is removed from the middle wall of the nose and, if necessary, from the cartilage of the ear.
  4. Correction of the shape of the nose: If the nasal septum is crooked and the nose is so-called deviated; The deviated nose operation is performed and during the operation, this deviation is corrected and the defects of the shape of the nose are eliminated. This change also improves a person’s breathing.
  5.  Completing the operation and closing the incision: When the structure and shape of the nose changes to the desired shape, the skin and covering on the nose are returned and the incision is sutured according to its type. If other incisions need to be made due to the extent of the operation, they will be incised in the natural folds of the nose so that the traces are less visible.
