Would you like to significantly redefine the contours of your nose for a lifetime to come?
Closed rhinoplasty is a minor surgical procedure that aims to optimize the shape and size of your nose. It’s an ideal treatment option for men and women that want to see real results but don’t necessarily have the time for an extended recovery. If you’re looking to achieve optimal facial contours and have a straight forward nasal anatomy, a closed rhinoplasty procedure at Stein Plastic Surgery might be worth considering.
How Does Closed Rhinoplasty Work?
A closed (or internal) rhinoplasty is done on an outpatient basis under IV sedation. All incisions are made within the inside of the nostrils allowing for no visible scarring. As a board-certified surgeon, Dr. Stein works to meticulously reshape the nostrils, tip, and bridge of your nose for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
Closed rhinoplasties require much more surgical skill than traditional open methods. This procedure can take anywhere from 1.5-3 hours to achieve an optimal outcome for your specific goals. After a short observation period, you’ll be able to recover in the comfort of your own home.
Am I a Good Candidate For Closed Rhinoplasty?
Dr. Stein typically prefers the closed method for rhinoplasties when a patient only requires minimal correction. The procedure allows for significant improvement with very little pain, side effects, or downtime. Rhinoplasty can be an effective treatment option for both adolescents and adults. Non-smokers who are in otherwise good general health are the best candidates for surgical procedures of all types.

What Results Will I See?
Many patients are happy with the results of their closed rhinoplasty immediately. You’ll generally see gradual improvement throughout the coming weeks and months. Full results from your surgery may not be present for up to 1-year as your nose ‘settles’ into its new position. Rhinoplasty is typically a one-time procedure that offers lifelong results for the right patient.
What is the Recovery Like?
You can expect limited recovery time after closed rhinoplasty. Because incisions are made solely within the inside of the nostrils, there is no visible scarring and swelling is minimal. Many men and women feel comfortable returning non-strenuous activities in about 5-10 days with social downtime being around 14-days. Each rhinoplasty is completely unique, and Dr. Stein customizes post-operative recovery plans accordingly.
