Is it true that closed rhinoplasty involves no incisions? How is this possible?
A closed rhinoplasty still involves making incisions. The incisions are placed inside the nose however. An open approach involves incisions inside the nose as well as across the skin of the columella (the tissue between the nostrils). In either instance the incisions nearly always heal without visibility or complication and so therefore the approach to rhinoplasty should be balanced towards the desired preferences of the surgeon and the surgical maneuvers necessary to achieve the appropriate outcome and not limited by the primary goal of avoiding the incisions themselves.
