The open rhinoplasty technique is best for patients with advanced deformity or a history of a previous cosmetic operation, which we call secondary surgery. The biggest advantage of open rhinoplasty is that it gives the surgeon a broad view of the patient’s problem. In the open rhinoplasty technique, the recovery period from nasal tip edema and bruising is longer than closed rhinoplasty.
