Open or Closed Technique Nose Aesthetic Surgery!

What are the advantages and disadvantages of open technique and closed technique rhinoplasty?

In the open technique, after the skin incision in the columella, the nose skin is dissected from front to back and the procedure is performed and a visible incision is seen. Complaints such as nasal edema, bleeding under the nose, numbness and pain can be expected more. However; open technique allows easy access and repair of all problem areas present in the nose. The open technique is more suitable, especially in patients with advanced cartilage curvature or nasal curvature. The experience and preferences of the surgeon and the patient's expectations are also important in the selection of the technique. Both techniques are safely applied in experienced hands.

Rhinoplasty is the most common aesthetic procedure performed today to improve the external appearance of the nose and to eliminate breathing difficulties. The operation performed in the surgery is basically the shaping of the bone …

Why Five Corner Columellar Incision is Used in Open Technique Rhinoplasty

Image
Mid-columellar W-shaped incision
In rhinoplasty operations, the cartilage structure of the nose is revealed by lifting the nasal skin from front to back. When viewed from the outside, the middle section that separates both nostrils is called “columella.. In the nose aesthetic techniques in medical history books, the incisions made to the skin of the columella have been modified and the reverse V or reverse W-shaped incision (columellar inverted-V incision) has become the most commonly used open technique rhinoplasty incision today.

In addition, incisions in the form of "Z" and "V" and other forms may also be used.
As the number of corners in the incision increases, fewer scars occur! It was found that as the number of vertices found in the incision to the columella increased, the formation of hypertrophic scarring decreased and fewer scars were left. Therefore, this incision, which has 5 corners in the picture, has become widely used in open technique rhinoplasty a…

Second month follow-up after endoscopic myringoplasty operation
Control hearing test (audiometry test) of a patient who had undergone endoscopic eardrum surgery to his right ear 2 months ago. When the eardrum was closed, the hearing was almost normal. Endoscopic ear surgery does not usually require an externally visible skin incision. The procedure is performed completely through the external ear canal. We also planned endoscopic membrane surgery in the other ear of our patient.

The reddish color of castellani solution, an antiseptic dye dripped into the patient's ear, can be seen in the cartilage graft placed at the site of the closed eardrum.




In endoscopic eardrum surgeries, there are advantages such as making the eardrum visible directly by the endovision prompt and not requiring additional skin incision except the incision in the cartilage graft area. Particularly in incisions made behind the auricle, there are disadvantages such as the need to press the auricle for several w…

Techniques For Reduce The Size of Inferior Turbinates
Some terminological information Before starting the article, I would like to share some terminological information:

The growth of nasal turbinates (turbinate hypertrophy) is a condition in which the meats inside the nose become larger than normal and cause nasal congestion.

The lower turbinate (inferior turbinate) is the turbinate at the bottom of the nasal cavity. Generally, reduction operations are performed for this turbinate.

Nasal hyperventilation, turbinate resections, which have recently been brought to the fore, may cause loss of permanent nasal function and is not a recommended method!

Abnormal reduction of the turbinate of the nose or an increase in the rate of intranasal airflow, such as in patients with holes in the nasal septum, and associated symptoms such as dryness of the nose, crusting of the nose and feeling of air hunger.

Empty nose syndrome, which occurs when partial or complete removal of the turbinate of the …

Postoperative Care For Adenoid Removal Surgery
Adenoid is a lymphoid tissue located at the back of the nasal cavity. In children with adenoid hypertrophy, mouth open sleep and various ear problems may occur.
How is adenoidectomy performed? Adenoidectomy is performed under general anesthesia. When the patient is lying on his back, the head is moved backwards, and after the automatic mouth retractor is placed, a thin probe is inserted through the nose into the oral cavity. By stretching the catheter, the soft palate moves forward and upward. The nasal flesh is scraped with tools called adenotom. In addition, adenoidectomy (shaver-adenoidectomy) can be performed with endoscopic method and shaver. Unlike other surgical procedures, most of the techniques used in adenoidectomy operations are similar.
