Is it better to perform rhinoplasty with a closed technique?
For patients of ethnicity who are prone to keloid scarring, is it better to perform rhinoplasty with a closed technique? Is it possible for keloids to form inside of the nose then and would this have any negative impact after surgery?
The risk of keloid scar following an open (aka external) rhinoplasty is very rare. During a closed (aka endonasal) rhinoplasty at Batniji Facial Plastic Surgery in Newport Beach, all incisions are placed inside the nose, thus further minimizing risk of keloid formation.
