What Does a Closed Rhinoplasty Mean?

If you’re like many of the patients who come to our Houston-area office for a rhinoplasty, you’ve probably done quite a bit of research before making your appointment. One of the questions Dr. Eisemann hears a lot regards the meaning of the terms “closed” and “open” rhinoplasty.

These terms essentially refer to the positioning of the incisions made during the procedure. With a closed rhinoplasty, those incisions are made inside the nostrils. There are no incisions on the outside of the nose.

By contrast, an “open” rhinoplasty also includes a small incision across the columella, which is the small bridge of skin between your left and right nostrils.

By keeping the incisions inside the nostrils, the closed rhinoplasty prevents the development of any visible scars. It’s a completely inconspicuous result that doesn’t place your scars on display.

Because there’s less room for maneuver in a closed rhinoplasty, the procedure requires an expert touch, not to mention a complete understanding of the structure of the nose. Dr. Eisemann has been performing nasal surgeries for decades, and as a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, he has proven his ability to achieve the extraordinary changes his patients desire.

If you’re a resident of the Houston, Texas area, or if you’re an out-of-town patient looking for a safe rhinoplasty experience, please contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today for a consultation.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Dr. Michael Eisemann, Dr. Bradley Eisemann, and the entire staff at Eisemann Plastic Surgery are committed to the health and safety of all of our patients and ourselves.

We are thankful to be connected to Houston Methodist Hospital, one of the most respected hospitals in the country. Because of this, our screening policy is aided by the hospital's official policies and checkpoint screening measures completed prior to entering our building. These measures allow us to do everything we can, at this point in time, to minimize the chance that we expose ourselves or our patients to someone who has been sick or contagious with the virus.

We are set up to perform new consults and patient follow-ups via ZOOM video conferencing.

As of Monday, March 23rd, our office is open. We are open and seeing select patients. If you are currently on the schedule, please call our office if you have any concerns about your own health.

While all major hospitals have stopped elective surgery at this time, we are very selectively performing indicated operative procedures in our procedure room and in our AAAASF certified operating room under local and IV sedation.

As always, both Dr. Michael Eisemann and Dr. Bradley Eisemann are available by phone and email to answer any questions you may have.
