Rhinoplasty is performed under a general anaesthetic and takes around two hours. Dr Mooney favours the ‘open-structure’ rhinoplasty technique. This involves a small incision between the nostrils, which leaves an almost imperceptible scar. This technique affords the best access and results, especially for a twisted nose and for tip deformities. It is the best technique to achieve the perfect nose.
Following the incision, the nasal ‘skeleton’ of bone and cartilage is meticulously remodeled to achieve the new nasal contour. The skin is then re-draped over the new frame and all incisions are closed. During the procedure problems such as airway and sinus issues, snoring and rhinitis (allergy) can be surgically treated.
