About Closed Rhinoplasty

If you need to make minor corrections to the shape, size, or structure of your nose, you may not need an open surgery with external scars. Dr. Lisiecki is a fellowship-trained aesthetic surgeon specializing in rhinoplasty, which allows him to refine your nasal structure without scars or incision marks. If you have an enlarged nose, wide nasal bones, dorsal hump, or an enlarged nose structure, you might be the ideal candidate for closed rhinoplasty in NYC.

What is closed rhinoplasty?

Closed rhinoplasty is a minimally invasive surgical technique that improves overall nasal symmetry and aesthetics via small incisions made inside the nose. Open surgery involves making an incision on the columella at the base of the nose, and a closed surgery involves internal incisions that remain hidden from plain view. However, a closed rhinoplasty can only facilitate minor alterations and shape modifications. Dr. Lisiecki will carefully examine your nose and discuss your goals to determine if you’re a candidate for closed rhinoplasty in NYC.

Closed rhinoplasty can
correct the following:

  • Enlarged nose structure
  • Wide nasal bones
  • Bulbous nasal tip
  • Minor dorsal humps
  • Minor symmetry issues

Dr. Lisiecki’s personalized closed rhinoplasty technique

Dr. Lisiecki performs a highly personalized closed rhinoplasty in NYC after a thorough consultation. The surgery is performed in his state-of-the-art surgical center under local anesthesia or general anesthesia. The surgeon makes extremely small incisions inside the nostrils, through which he makes small adjustments and modifications to the soft tissues and cartilage. The specific techniques used depend on your unique goals and expectations. The procedure should conclude within 1 to 2 hours.

Recovery after a closed rhinoplasty surgery

The surgeon will place a nasal splint or cast on your nose to promote optimal healing and recovery. You will experience considerable swelling, bruising, tenderness, and nasal congestion for a few days, but the lingering symptoms may last for several weeks. You can resume work and normal activities after a week, but you should avoid strenuous activities for around 4 weeks after the procedure. The final results may be evident after a year.
