How visible will rhinoplasty scars be?

There are two major approaches to rhinoplasty that is to say, closed and open. With the closed techniques the scars are all on the inside of the nose and therefore undetectable. An open technique may be used for more complex surgery and places scars on the inside of the nose too but with a small extension that is detectable but actually nearly always very inconspicuous on the undersurface of the columella, the strut of soft tissue that lies between the openings of the nostrils. I will usually use a closed approach for most noses and I also use something called an extramucosal technique, an approach that helps to minimise scarring further.

At Cambridge Clear Beauty we know you want to live a happy, confident life to its fullest. However, not everyone is happy with the shape of their nose, and this can even cause difficulty breathing. This can make you shy away from the camera and feel uncomfortable. This is just plain wrong. We believe everyone should feel confident and comfortable in their own skin and breathe easy. Regain your self confidence and never let your nose stop you from living your perfect lifestyle.
