The question of scar tissue in open rhinoplasty

The question of scar tissue in open rhinoplasty


Lately, because open rhinoplasty is preferred mostly, noticeable scar tissue may be questioned by the patients.  There is no external incision in a closed rhinoplasty. In open rhinoplasty, there is a small incision on the columella between the nostrils. The ones inside the nostrils are not visible. This incision used in open rhinoplasty is made in an inverted  -V  healing easily. It may be noticed a couple months with a slight hypertrophic and inflamed appearance, but it completely disappears with time. It stays in a hidden location under the nose as imperceptible. So really for us, the surgeons, that is one of the least important details concerning the open rhinoplasty as a whole.
