During Closed Rhinoplasty

How is Closed Rhinoplasty performed?

Closed rhinoplasties are done as an alternative to the open technique. Instead of exposing the nasal structure, incisions are made on the nasal membrane in varying locations to access different parts of the nose framework. By not opening the nose, patients are able to have reduced recovery times and non-visible scars. Whatever your goals may be, whether for an ethnic rhinoplasty or rejuvenation nose job, a closed technique can most likely be utilized.

During a closed rhinoplasty, incisions will be made on the inside of the nose. The nasal structure will not be exposed which means decreased visualization for the surgeon, however postoperative scarring will be hidden and discreet. The addition of an endoscope may be used during a closed rhinoplasty to increase visualization. When repair has been completed, sutures will close incisions and an external splint or cast will be placed over the nose.

The goal of a closed rhinoplasty is to achieve facial harmony by changing the shape, size or angle of the nose. Closed rhinoplasty can also be used to correct breathing problems resulting from irregularities inside the nose.

After Closed Rhinoplasty


Since closed nose surgery is less invasive than the open method, there will be less swelling and bruising after this surgery and the nose will heal faster. There might even be no bruising after closed rhinoplasty in some patients. Therefore, the recovery time in closed rhinoplasty is shorter than in open rhinoplasty and patients usually need a shorter time to be able to return to their normal life.

The full results of a closed rhinoplasty become visible within approximately one to two years of treatment because it takes this long for all of the swelling to go away completely. However, downtime after a closed or open rhinoplasty generally lasts about two weeks. A nose splint is typically removed within five to six days of a closed rhinoplasty procedure. At this point, post-rhinoplasty bruising and swelling is usually minimal, too.

Flying after Closed rhinoplasty

A patient must not fly for at least 5 days after the surgery. While unlikely, the possibility that you will have a nosebleed during the flight, which could be an emergency situation, is avoided. It is still not recommended to fly for an additional week (in total 2 weeks), but many patients cannot stay in town for that long of a period. If you must fly during the second week of your recovery, it is important to take Sudafed and spray a nasal decongestant (Afrin or other) prior to taking off. If not, the pressure changes during the flight may be very painful. It is also typical to have renewed swelling after the flight, which will last about 1-2 days. All of these issues are not concerning if you are planning to travel by car or train.

Out of town patients should plan to stay a few days after the surgery at a hotel. They can travel and fly back home after splint removal at 5-7 days.  Physical activity should be limited for 10-14 days. It usually takes about 6 weeks before the patient can exercise again without discomfort. High-risk contact sports should be avoided for 3 months.
