Endonasal rhinoseptoplasty: advantages and disadvantages
The first and the most important benefit of the internal rhinoplasty is its’ reduced invasiveness compared to the open approach. The closed surgical procedure has a shorter operation time, which for its part, is an important element to reduce overall operative invasiveness: a significant issue so often neglected, as by surgeons, as by patients. Statistically closed/endonasal rhinoplasty demonstrates less dowmtime, which mean earlier socialization of the patient and return to the normal preoperative rhythm and style of life. Needless to say, that all these elements have an great impact on the patients’ quality of life. And these are the reasons also why many surgeons are abandoning the open approach in favor of the closed nose jobs.
In short, the advantages of endonasal procedure include:
- Greater versatility: the surgeon can choose techniques depending on the defect to be corrected. This is a major difference from theopen rhinoplasty, where the standard approach is always the same, regardless of the patient’s anatomy;
- Shorter operation times;
- No risk of external scarring. Scars could be left only in case of contextual narrowing of the nostrils (therefore, the open technique could potentially leave a double scar);
- Often more natural and predictable results;
- Reduced postoperative swelling;
- Faster recovery time and less downtime.
- Possibility to use different incisions to reach the areas to be corrected. This increases safety and reduces the risk of serious complications in patients who have already undergone multiple surgeries – especially with the open technique. In addition, minimal invasive rhinoplasties put less stress on the outer covering skin, which is very often affected by the many previous procedures.
At the same time, this technique also has following disadvantages:
- working on the nasal structures without a complete exposure is challenging from the technical point of view and requires advanced skills, precision, and experience;
- the procedure may be not indicated for extreme rhinoseptoplasties and complex revisions (secondary rhinoplasty), which could need a complete exposure for reconstruction manoeuvres.
What patients are looking for in closed rhinoplasty?
Patients who looking for endonasal septorhinoplasty usually aimed fot a non-destructive and minimally invasive approach in nasal cosmetic surgery. Some of them are travel so fa to be operated by the surgeon specialized in endonasal rhinoplasty, who, like an artist, combines the skills of precise and meticulous sculpting giving a visual shape of invisible things with maximal awareness.
Assuming the equal surgical experience of the operating surgeon, the results of open or closed septorhinoplasties are indeed comparable. Except for previously operated noses and complex corrections, closed nose jobs generally produce more natural results. New hybrid nasal surgery technique is even more versatile and precise, as it combines the advantages and benefits from both closed/endonasal and open approaches.
However, it is only the surgeon responsibility and moral obligation to suggest the surgical technique which could provide the best result in rhinoplasty for each individual patient. And the surgeon should be professional and honest. A true expert in rhinoseptoplasty can reshape the profile with precision and delicacy, obtaining stable, natural, pleasant and harmonious results applying both surgical techniques.

Hybrid rhinoplasty, now in use for over a decade, met the expectations in rhinoplasty of many patients, minimizing complications and providing optimal post-operative recovery and low downtime.
Aesthetic surgeons should master all essential rhinoseptoplasty techniques, to be able to choose the one right approach appropriate to the anatomical features of the patients and his/her desires in rhinoplasty.Therefore, it is naïve to choose a surgeon who applies the only one single surgical philosophy that he advocates in his internet communications. It is far wiser to rely on someone who has mastered all techniques and can adapt them to the patient.
