Dr Ananda is a Sydney based specialist in Rhinoplasty and Sinus Surgery.
Rhinoplasty (commonly known as a “nose job”) is a cosmetic surgery procedure to improve the shape of the nose in order to correct life-long issues, or deformities that resulted from an injury. Rhinoplasty can also undertaken to relieve nasal obstruction or breathing problems because of the irregularities in the internal structure of the nose.
Closed technique: All incisions are made inside the nostrils to access bone and cartilages. Although there is no external incision mark but the access is limited.
Open technique: A small external columellar incision
is placed in addition to intranasal incisions to access nasal cartilages and bones. The skin is lifted, allowing greater access to perform the procedure. The advantage is a good exposure and precise modification of nasal shape.
