Open Rhinoplasty Perth

Open Rhinoplasty Perth

Open rhinoplasty is performed primarily to improve the shape of the nose and sometimes to improve a patient’s breathing and nasal airway. Straightening a previously broken nose, removing a “bump”, improving the shape of a bulbous tip, or narrowing wide nostrils are all indications for open rhinoplasty. 

The open rhinoplasty is an excellent option for patients who wish to alter the appearance of the tip of their nose and nostrils. An open rhinoplasty is defined as having similar incisions to the closed technique except one additional small incision is made at the base of the nose, on the columella (the tissue between the nostrils). This incision, which is only a few millimetres in length, heals extremely well and is nearly impossible to detect, leaving no visible scars.

The reason for performing an open rhinoplasty procedure is determined by Dr. Imani during your consultation with him in his Perth rooms. 

Dr Imani performs both open and closed rhinoplasty however the open rhinoplasty procedure generally provides superior results due to it allowing the surgeon to gain better access to the cartilage and bone of the nose. Dr Imani can then make precise and symmetric changes to the supportive structures of the nose, providing the best chance of a good cosmetic and functional outcome.
