Rhinoplasty should be conducted by applying general or local anesthesia and there are 2 types of procedures according to the conditions and characteristics of the person.

The closed Rhinoplasty is the most common method, is performed through incisions on the inside of the nostrils so that no external scar is not visible. Open Rhinoplasty is used to cases with a greater degree of difficulty for example for the transformation of large deformation. In the said procedure leaves a small scar, (which will disappear in a few months with the relevant care), making a cut of the membranes of the tip as well as the back where the surgeon will directly access the structures of the body. Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure, i.e. is not required to stay and sleep in the hospital or clinic. However, if the patient has many discomforts, you can stay under medical supervision 24 hours. At Dr. John Mcdougall you will find additional information.
