How is rhinoplasty performed?
Rhinoplasty is performed under general anesthesia and is an outpatient procedure. At North Shore Cosmetic Surgery, we perform rhinoplasty with either an open or closed technique. The objective during treatment is to reduce or reshape the cartilage and to reduce and reposition bone if needed. In some cases, we build up the cartilage to create a more attractive look to a flatter bridge. The nose structure is reshaped, repositioned, and the skin redraped over the corrected framework.
