The Incision

  • As per common practice Dr. Economou designs the incisions inside the nostril as to hide them inside the nose.
  • In the case of open rhinoplasty there is an incision at the columella (the skin at the end of the diaphragm) this is often not visible a few months after the operation but this depends on a number of factors.

Closing the incisions

Dr. Economou, closes all the incisions meticulously, paying a close attention to detail. Finaly by using excellent techniques he ensures consistently good results.

Your results

As with any surgical procedure you can expect some bruising and swelling. Also each patient heals in a different way and there are some measures you can take to help speed your recovery.
