The Secret to a Perfect Nose: Exploring Scarless Rhinoplasty


An extremely popular surgical procedure when talking about plastic surgery is rhinoplasty because, thanks to this procedure, thousands of patients year after year can enjoy a more beautiful face thanks to the arrangement of some imperfections in the nose area.

It is so popular that in the plastic surgery market, there are thousands of ways to perform this procedure; the most common is with the traditional method of surgery.

Traditional rhinoplasty has a great disadvantage, and that is that when someone performs a cosmetic procedure on the face, what he expects is that there are no marks or scars from the procedure. This factor is very common with traditional methods.

Fortunately, thanks to technological advances and innovation in plastic surgery methods, it is possible to have a scarless rhinoplasty with instant and safe results.


What is Scarless Rhinoplasty?

Scarless rhinoplasty has certain differences from traditional rhinoplasty, starting with the fact that closed rhinoplasty is a procedure that can be performed in the office, is not painful, and does not require downtime.

Another of the main characteristics of scarless rhinoplasty is that it does not require scalpels or any other tool that leaves a scar on the face.

The advantages of this procedure are temporary, so after a certain period, it will be necessary to go back to the surgeon to perform it again.


Who is a good candidate for Scarless Rhinoplasty?

While with other cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, it is necessary to perform different types of studies to know if you are suitable or not to undergo the technique, scarless rhinoplasty only needs a few studies to verify whether you are suitable.

Scarless rhinoplasty is applied mainly in people who have reached the age of majority; it is suitable for any patient who wants to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of their nose. 

However, some considerations are that traditional rhinoplasty is probably necessary if the nose presents more than subjective deformities.

Even so, it is so frequent and accessible that it can be performed at any time of the year, and it would not have complications due to external factors such as summer heat or winter cold.


How is Scarless Rhinoplasty performed?

Scarless rhinoplasty is usually performed under general anesthesia, or in particular cases, with local anesthesia and sedation. Depending on the complexity, it takes approximately one hour to work on the nasal cartilage and bones.

As scarless rhinoplasty does not require external incisions, this rhinoplasty technique leaves no visible scar on the patient’s nose. In addition, since no columellar incision is made, postoperative swelling will be less.

Unlike traditional rhinoplasty, this translates into a faster recovery, which requires more specific and delicate care for adequate healing after surgery.


Benefits of Scarless Rhinoplasty

The main benefit of this type of rhinoplasty is that it will not leave a mark on the nose, making the patient feel confident with the results obtained after the surgery.

By having instant results, it is undeniable that in terms of self-esteem, the patient will feel self-confident by improving the appearance of the central area of his face.

The recovery period is shorter and may vary depending on the patient. However, the only drawback of this procedure is that the results are not lifelong, so it will be necessary to return to the surgeon for a scarless rhinoplasty after a while.

In the vast majority of cases, those patients who have already had a scarless rhinoplasty are candidates for a second or more scarless rhinoplasty.


Risks and Complications of Scarless Rhinoplasty

Scarless rhinoplasty carries certain types of risks similar to traditional rhinoplasty.

The most common could be some type of infection, adverse reaction to anesthesia during the procedure, or obvious bleeding.

Other possible risks specific to closed rhinoplasty that also occur in traditional rhinoplasty could include difficulty breathing through the nose, some numbness in and around the nose, pain, swelling, or any other inconvenience that requires additional surgery.

In any case, it is always advisable to go immediately to the surgeon, even if a scheduled appointment was not foreseen, since attending to this type of problem quickly reduces the risk of this complication escalating and endangering the patient.


Scarless Rhinoplasty Recovery and Aftercare

Care after a scarless rhinoplasty is important to recover and minimize future complications effectively.

This type of care ranges from rest to avoiding certain types of food.

First, it is important to keep the head and thorax elevated to rest or sleep, apply gauze every 30 minutes during the first 48 hours after surgery, and avoid direct contact with the nose.

When eating, it is very likely to feel a slight pain or discomfort in the nose area, so soft and cold foods should be prioritized during the first weeks. In this part, alcoholic beverages should be avoided until the surgeon indicates when it is possible to consume them.

Some other recommendations would be not to blow your nose and open your mouth during sneezing, avoid direct sunlight on your face, not wear glasses, and not engage in physical activities such as contact sports.

Dr. Was very honest about the procedure I wanted. I came in to get a BBL and he told me I didn't have enough fat to transfer. Instead of just telling me what I wanted to hear he was very honest in not recommending the procedure.
