NUNEZ, Jesús Amarilla; ALDANA, Celso Augusto  e  PENA, Adriana Fabiola. Closed Rhinoplasty: a current technique. An. Fac. Cienc. Méd. (Asunción) [online]. 2022, vol.55, n.3, pp.110-116. ISSN 1816-8949.

Closed rhinoplasty is a surgery that is performed in order to change the structure of the nose, for cosmetic or restorative purposes. It seeks to make small touches that achieve a natural appearance. It is one of the most complex cosmetic surgeries and represents a challenge for the surgeon, as it combines technique with sensitivity and science with art.

In this article, we describe this technique in order to demonstrate its effectiveness and validity, without comparing it with open rhinoplasty, since it is not a matter of discussion in this work, so we cannot guarantee that one option is better or worse than the other. It is best if surgeons are trained to perform any of these.

With closed rhinoplasty, results are achieved that meet the expectations of both patients and surgeons, and the postoperative period is brief and practically uneventful.

It is a proposal that has precise indications within the framework of conservative rhinoplasty, which is currently a worldwide trend.
