I have a nose that is too wide at the tip. I would like this reduced in size and I would also like the nose shortened. Do you use the open-tip technique with an incision across the columella? Is general anesthesia suggested or required?
Each patient is different. The choice of technique for your rhinoplasty procedure is based on what your anatomical features are now and what result you want to achieve. After we determine that I will tell you what I think is the best way I can achieve it for you. You can have general or local anesthesia or IV sedation. Most patients choose general or IV sedation.
