Closed rhinoplasty also known as endonasal rhinoplasty is a worldwide accepted cosmetic procedure. Rhinoplasty is an intricate procedure and needs a wide eye to analyse and fix the patient’s concern. The word endo nasal means the incision is made inside the nostrils and the scars are not seen outside as with an open rhinoplasty case. Though a closed rhinoplasty addresses many concerns like bump on the bridge of the nose, the height of the nose, the tip of the nose and also the size of the nose, this surgical technique has some restrictions which can always be addressed with many open surgical techniques.
