Folsom rhinoplasty patients prefer a closed rhinoplasty which is a performed through incisions hidden inside the nose. The skin is separated from the bone and cartilage and the appropriate changes are made. The incisions are closed with dissolvable stitches. Dr. Thomas Kaniff finds the closed rhinoplasty technique is suitable for most rhinoplasty surgeries. See “Why Have a Rhinoplasty By Dr. Kaniff”
An open rhinoplasty is performed using incisions inside the nose, as well as a skin incision across the skin bridge between nostrils known as the columella. The advantage of the open rhinoplasty technique is better visualization of the nasal tip cartilages if needed. An open rhinoplasty approach is often used in revision rhinoplasty surgery or the placement of numerous cartilage grafts. See “Rhinoplasty Consultation”
Granite Bay rhinoplasty patients are sometimes candidates for a tip rhinoplasty which limits changes to the lower third of the nose – the nasal tip. Dr. Kaniff has the rhinoplasty expertise to modify the nasal tip cartilage changing the shape, rotation and projection of the nasal tip.
Revision rhinoplasty refers to nose surgery on a nose that has previously been operated on. Revision rhinoplasty is more difficult because of scar tissue and structural changes from prior surgery. Revision rhinoplasty is more difficult, takes longer, and is more expensive. See “Rhinoplasty Cost”
Nonsurgical rhinoplasty or noninvasive rhinoplasty refers to the injection of dermal fillers to produce visual changes to the nose. Fillers add volume to the nose to camouflage certain attributes. The changes are temporary and this treatment is used by Dr. Kaniff in limited situations.
