Is the open rhinoplasty technique more often used than closed rhinoplasty?
I believe that is correct, but to my knowledge that statistic has never been collected. It isn’t as important which technique is used more frequently, but rather is the surgeon skilled at the technique or not. Very satisfactory results can be obtained with either technique. I will utilize the closed technique (better referred to as endonasal) for less complicated noses and an open approach for noses requiring more intervention.
