It depends on how extensive the work required is. I had mine done via an open approach as I have my tip rebuilt with cartilage from my rib. From the time the stitch was removed from under the bottom of the tip at day 6, I've never been able to see a scar. It is the most tiny of hairline scars.

Hey, Liturname. You better consult a rhinoplasty specialist and he can help you better. I have done a closed rhinoplasty procedure in Toronto ( http://www.droakleysmithrhinoplasty.com/rhinoplasty/ ).  It may differ from person. There are lot of youtube videos which explains the procedure in detail.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9HyKCxs6Bw&feature=youtu.be

Hope you will get an idea after watching this video.

From what I've gathered from my own research - for open the incision is made across the bottom of your nose (between your nostrils) and for closed the incision is made in the mucosal linings of your nostrils (there's actually a lot of images on google showing exactly where the incision is made - although just a warning, they're pretty graphic).

In terms of which is best I think it's best to have a look through some popular surgeons websites on the issue. A lot of them will have addressed their preferred method on there. For example, the surgeon I've been looking into for about a year now (and still undecided ahhh) prefers open for the majority of primary rhinos and open for ALL revision rhinos.

Hi Liturname, It would be better if you consult with a rhinoplasty surgeon in your locality. Only a specialist will be able to say what kind of procedure should you undergo. It may differ from persons.
