How is Open Rhinoplasty Different from Close Rhinoplasty?


Close Rhinoplasty with Silicone

It is a popular rhinoplasty technique in Thailand. It is a surgery on the bridge and tip of the nose with silicone to make it higher. The surgical wound is hidden inside the nose. The silicone used is L-shaped to lift the tip of the nose to increase the bulge of the nose tip as well. It must be designed for the patient appropriately due to the high chance of nasal perforation. it is suitable for noses that have good structure but want to add prominence.

Open Rhinoplasty


Open Rhinoplasty or Open Reconstruction will focus on the reconstruction of the structure. For example, cartilage remodeling, nasal septum straightening, nasal septal deviation correction, deviated cartilage, and large or humped nasal tip. Open rhinoplasty will open an incision at the front of the nasal septum to clearly see the structure for surgery. The cartilage of the body will be used to adjust the structure of the nose. Open rhinoplasty has both silicone-free and 100% silicone-free tips. The silicone-free tip around the bridge of the nose usually uses an I-shaped silicone. It is a hybrid technique that can design a nose shape without limits.

How Many Types of Open Rhinoplasty?

Open Rhinoplasty or Open Reconstruction can straighten and lift the nose tip with septal cartilage. It is the only bone in the body that is flat and strong. The doctor will surgically remove only 2/3 of the cartilage in the middle of the nose for the nose tip surgery. Septal cartilage will safely elongate the tip of the nose. It can be used by other cartilages in the body. There are three popular types of cartilage:

1. Ear Cartilage

There are 2 surgical incisions, a normal nasal septum and an incision that made to remove the cartilage behind the ear. The incision is hidden in the crease of the ear, making it invisible. The concha area will be selected by the doctor. A doctor who is skilled enough will be able to remove the right amount of cartilage that does not deform the shape of the ear. The main structural part for lengthening the nose is to septal cartilage and stitching to the original nasal septum in order to lengthen the nasal septum naturally. It will emphasize the nasal prominence safely without silicone usage. It can enhance and adjust the nose tip more than normal silicone. It also reduces the chance of perforation even more.

2. Rib Cartilage

It is an advanced technique that can solve most problems by using the ribs. At present, there are 3 types of ribs that are commonly used in rhinoplasty: self-ribs, donated ribs, and synthetic ribs.
The doctor will make an incision under the breast about 2 cm to remove about 1 rib, then divide more than 10 pieces and subdivide another 10-20 pieces to structure and reshape the nose. It’s a difficult and complicated method. It is suitable for people who want to have surgery only once, in case of multiple rhinoplasty or severe abnormality. It requires surgery under general anesthesia under the supervision of a skilled physician and takes longer than other techniques.
Artificial rib cartilage or rib cartilage from overseas donors come in many brands and qualities. They vary in size and are more fragile than the ribs themselves.
Synthetic rib or PCL Mesh stands for Polycaprolactone Mesh. It is a medical material that has been used for a long time. Nowadays, it is used for rhinoplasty because it can replaces the patient’s real cartilage. It is suitable for people who don’t want to use cartilage in their body.

3. Other Open Rhinoplasties

It may be an L- or I-shaped silicone augmentation that extends from the ridge to the tip of the nose, covering the top layer of the nasal structure. This technique will create a prominent nose shape. It can correct the short nose, and the tip of the nose will be decorated with material such as Gore-Tex or ear cartilage. The tip of the nose will look natural and reduce the problem of seeing joints from inserting silicone. This technique is not suitable for people with thin skin or who have previously had inflammation from nose surgery. It may cause thin and clear nose tip problems in the future.

What is Open Rhinoplasty without Silicone on Nose Tip and 100% without Silicone?

The open rhinoplasty without silicone on nose tip is combined with open rhinoplasty with ear cartilage or rib cartilage. It is suitable for those who have a big hump and high nose bridge. It includes people who don’t want to insert silicone. It can be replaced with a special Gore-Tex tissue. In the case of people with high humps, the doctor removes the bony arches and smoothens the surface. The permanently removed bone will no longer bulge. The bridge of the nose will look more sloped, beautiful and soft. The 100% without silicone is suitable for people with a hooked nose tip or a high nose bridge. The doctors will use the open rhinoplasty technique together with hump reduction to reduce the height of the nasal bridge and nose tip, then decorate with ear cartilage or rib cartilage.

Open rhinoplasty with rib cartilage is taking about 1 rib to be broken down into 16-20 sub-parts. It is enough to reshape the nasal structure and no more ear cartilage is needed.

It is both silicone and non-silicone. In most cases, we only use 20-30% of the silicone around the bridge of the nose. In some cases that already have a nose bridge, it can be done without silicone.

  • Alloderm is a synthetic sponge-like material. It can reshape the tip of the nose or stimulate tissue regeneration and can be used in thin-skin cases or as an augmentation to prevent skin perforation. It is popular both in Thailand and abroad. But in the long run, Alloderm may collapse which results in a flattened nose.
  • The cartilage behind the ear comes from the patient himself. It is strong and less prone to allergies. It won’t collapse in the long run and looks natural. It can reshape of the nose tip more than Alloderm.

Yes, it is possible. It is suitable for those who have a hooked nose tip or a high nose bridge. We will use the open technique together with hump removal to reduce the height of the nose bridge and reshape the tip with ear cartilage or rib cartilage.

• It depends on the technique and experience of the doctor. However, we take security very seriously. All cases will be operated by highly experienced doctors and we will use silicone only 20-30% to ensure long-term safety.

You should refrain from washing your hair until the wound has healed completely or as advised by your doctor.

It can last a lifetime because the silicone implants do not expire.

We have a unique technique for cutting rib cartilage. We will leave some of the rib membranes to allow the ribs in that area to regenerate.

Close rhinoplasty will cause a small incision inside the nose. It’s suitable for people with a slight nose problem. Open rhinoplasty will cause an incision at the base of the nose to reveal the entire structure. It can fix all kinds of nasal problems. In conclusion, the nose shape will look more natural than close rhinoplasty.
