Learn About Types of Rhinoplasty Surgery Available in Bangkok

R hinoplasty is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world. In Bangkok, Nirunda Aesthetic Clinic offers the highest quality rhinoplasty surgery procedures. There are different types of rhinoplasty surgery to suit all kinds of medical and cosmetic issues. To familiarize yourself a little more with the conditions that rhinoplasty can help rectify, let’s take a look at the different types of rhinoplasty that have been developed. There are many types of rhinoplasty surgical techniques offered these days. The surgeon makes the final decision on which of these techniques is best to achieve the desired results of the surgery.

Closed Rhinoplasty

Closed rhinoplasty or Internal Approach Rhinoplasty is a technique where all the incisions are made within the nasal interior. This type of procedure is most requested by patients because it hides all the incisions and subsequent scars. Closed rhinoplasty can be used with patients who don’t require complex straightening of the lower parts of the nose or extensive work on the nose tip.

Open Rhinoplasty

Open Rhinoplasty or Open Structure Rhinoplasty creates an incision on the exterior of the nose that allows the surgeon to access the entire structure of the nose. It’s the procedure of choice for patients that require reshaping of the bridge of the nose, narrowing of the nostrils, or other extensive procedures. Many patients shy away from the idea of having exterior incisions on such a prominent feature of their face. But experienced surgeons are highly skilled at minimizing the scarring and placing the incisions in areas that hide them from view.

Tip Plasty

Tip plasty is used when the surgery is confined to working on the tip of the nose. It can be an open or a closed procedure, depending on the desired results.


This procedure is also known as alar trimming or nostril reduction surgery. It’s a procedure to change the width and shape of the nostrils. The ‘alae’ are the wings of the nostrils, the fleshy parts of the nostrils on the outside of the nose. Most aesthetic surgeons agree that the width of the nostrils should closely match the width of the eye area or one-fifth of the width of your face. If your alae exceed these guidelines, you may be unconsciously uncomfortable with your appearance.

An alarplasty is a relatively quick closed rhinoplasty procedure that can provide a dramatic change to the patient's appearance. Generally, after making an incision in the alar crease on the sides of the nose, the surgeon will remove a wedge-shaped piece of tissue from the nostril wall. Then they will do some final shaping before re-attaching the base of the nostrils and suturing the incisions.

The simple procedure of narrowing the nose can provide immense benefits to people suffering from self-esteem issues related to the appearance of their nose. Alarplasty can provide benefits including:

  • Correcting a difference in sizes between your two nostrils
  • Narrowing your nostrils to match your eyes and other facial features
  • Improved breathing when there’s a nasal obstruction
  • Enhancing your facial features and self-confidence

Hump Reduction Rhinoplasty

Hump reduction rhinoplasty is removing or reducing a noticeable dorsal hump in the bridge of the nose. The thickness of the skin over the hump, and where the hump lies along the nose are aspects the surgeon considers when deciding on using an open or closed technique. In the top portion of the nose, the hump can be composed of bone, while in the middle and lower areas of the nose, the hump is formed from cartilage.

Preparing for a Rhinoplasty Procedure

If you've decided to have a rhinoplasty procedure, one of the first steps is to undergo a medical evaluation with your doctor as you may need to have your medications adjusted or start taking different medications before surgery.

You'll be asked to stop taking anti-inflammatory medications, and herbal supplements as these may increase your risk of bleeding during surgery.

A rhinoplasty procedure is always performed while the patient is under general anesthesia. You'll notice some bruising and dark areas around the eyes and cheeks following the surgery. This will last for about three to seven days.

A few days after the surgery, you can begin to use makeup as a concealer if you wish. You may have noticeable swelling for several weeks. The swelling will start to go down, but residual swelling can last for months, particularly around the tip of the nose. But remember, this swelling is likely to only be apparent to you.

Improve Your Outlook and Self-confidence

The decision to undergo rhinoplasty is a deeply personal one. It’s one that you have to make freely and willingly. Undergoing a rhinoplasty procedure can give people a new outlook on life, improve their self-confidence and even change a person’s life for the better.

Developing a healthy sense of self-esteem and confidence can be much easier when you like what you see in the mirror. If you’re dissatisfied with your looks or think some aspect of your appearance may be holding you back professionally or socially, discuss it with your family and friends before making a final decision.
