Where are the incisions made for a typical rhinoplasty? Are they visible to others?
Two types of rhinoplasties can be performed, endonasal (closed) and open. In the endonasal rhinoplasty technique all of the incisions are located inside the nose. For open rhinoplasty most of the incisions are placed inside the nose, but there is also a small irregular incision located across the bottom skin of the nose called the columella. This incision is barely perceptible and rarely to never causes any concern.
