Types of rhinoplasty can vary according to the needs of each person. By reading this article, you will get acquainted with different kinds of nose jobs, you will find out what kind of rhinoplasty there is, and therefore you can choose the right type of rhinoplasty in Iran. This article is a guide to selecting the best type of cosmetic nose surgery. You may decide to have rhinoplasty to improve the appearance and proportion of your nose. Another reason for rhinoplasty may be breathing problems or correction of abnormalities caused by trauma or congenital disabilities. This procedure can change the overall size of your nose, tip, bridge, and nostrils.      

 In general, rhinoplasty has two main types: 

  • Open Rhinoplasty
  • Closed Rhinoplasty

In addition to these two main types, there are other types:

  • Secondary Rhinoplasty
  • Filler Rhinoplasty
  • Reduction rhinoplasty

Open Rhinoplasty

Open rhinoplasty is also called external rhinoplasty. In an Open Rhinoplasty, a tiny incision is made in the columella area to separate the two nostrils. You can pull all the nose's skin above the cartilage and bone and see everything inside the nose. Doctors use this method for significant nose reshaping. You may need open nose surgery in the following cases:

  • Severe injury (trauma to the nose)
  • when the treatment area is located high in the nasal cavity
  • patients with issues such as genetic or structural deformities
  • The nose requiring grafting and unsatisfactory results from a previous nose job 

The results of this type of rhinoplasty are more acceptable and without defects. This method also has disadvantages:

  • Increased edema
  • Extended surgical time
  • There is a chance of visible scarring depending on how patients heal (Infection)

Closed Rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty is also called endonasal rhinoplasty. In a closed rhinoplasty, 

surgeons made the incisions only inside the nostrils – scarring is well hidden, but access to the nasal structures is more limited. Doctors may use The addition of an endoscope during this type of rhinoplasty to increase visualization. Bruising and swelling after closed nasal surgery is less than open; this is why the patient returns to everyday life much faster after closed rhinoplasty. You can use this type of rhinoplasty for minor nose reshaping. Also, doctors recommended closed rhinoplasty for rhinoplasty patients who require nasal bridge modifications.

We should note that if a person's nostrils are large and need to be made smaller, even in a closed rhinoplasty procedure, the doctor must cut their nostrils.

Closed rhinoplasty is not recommended for revision rhinoplasties or candidates under the age of 18 unless the correction is due to injury; however, Physicians should assess the need for surgery

on a case-by-case basis. We don't recommend closed rhinoplasty for revised rhinoplasty or candidates under the age of 18 unless the correction is due to injury; however, Physicians should assess the need for surgery on a case-by-case basis.

Some side effects that rhinoplasty may include:

  • Numbness
  • Nosebleeds
  • Sores
  • Swelling
  • Rupture of small blood vessels on the surface of the skin
  • Permanent nerve damage

Secondary Rhinoplasty (Revision Rhinoplasty)

Secondary rhinoplasty is another type of rhinoplasty. it is a complicated aesthetic and reconstructive procedure in which we must consider both functional and cosmetic principles in planning an appropriate operation. This method aims at modifying the functional and decorative defects caused by an improperly performed primary procedure.

Common problems that require Secondary Rhinoplasty or Re-nose operation:

  • A problem in the appearance of the nose after rhinoplasty: You aren't happy with how your nose looks
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Severe injury (trauma to the nose)

Filler Rhinoplasty

Filler Rhinoplasty is a type of non-surgical rhinoplasty. Non-surgical rhinoplasty has recently gained popularity for patients looking to alter the nose's shape or appearance because it is without incurring the risk, cost, and downtime. You can enhance the look of your nose without surgery and the rest that it requires. In this method, doctors perform nasal surgery without surgery. Injectable fillers can correct small impressions after rhinoplasty and avoid revision surgery. It is an excellent option for patients who do not wish to have weeks of downtime after rhinoplasty, who do not require more than small enhancements to be made to the nose, or do not want to undergo surgery. 

It is better to avoid touching the treatment area 6 hours after the treatment.

Reduction rhinoplasty (Reduction Plastic Surgery)

Reduction rhinoplasty is a cosmetic surgery that involves reducing the size of the nose. This procedure is quite simple, and surgeons can do it in 30-45 minutes. If rhinoplasty is just a reduction procedure, it may cost less than other types of rhinoplasty.

Laser rhinoplasty

With the advancement of technology, the use of lasers in surgeries has become popular. Laser surgeries have become especially popular among people. Due to the involvement of many tissues of the nose in rhinoplasty, the laser cannot control and work on all these issues. Therefore, surgeons don't use laser rhinoplasty and it has a promotional aspect.

Many people wish to have laser rhinoplasty. Maybe in the near future, surgeons will perform rhinoplasty without the need to touch the nose. At the time being, laser rhinoplasty is just a misleading advertisement. As a result, there is currently no such thing as laser nose surgery.
