Also known as endonasal (closed) rhinoplasty, incisionless rhinoplasty hides small incisions inside the nose and offers several advantages:
- No external incisions
- Less swelling
- Less numbness
While each case is different and requires a unique treatment plan, incisionless rhinoplasty can be used under a wide variety of circumstances from the most simple to the most difficult. Dr. Chaboki offers his patients, who visit him from areas like Northern Virginia and Maryland, both open rhinoplasty and incisionless rhinoplasty procedures and will help determine the most appropriate method for his patients. Rhinoplasty, even when performed for cosmetic reasons, should avoid decreasing nasal function. It would be inappropriate to get a cosmetically improved nose if you are unable breathe through it. For this reason, it's important to choose a surgeon with an artistic eye and sound medical experience.

Building up the bridge of the nose is a popular request for some rhinoplasty patients. Asian or African-American rhinoplasty patients may have a flatter nose and request some form of nasal augmentation. Patients with traumatic nasal injuries may have a collapsed bridge or "saddle nose." Nasal implants are placed via smalls incisions hidden inside the nose. Nasal augmentation with implants is an outpatient procedure with a short recovery time.
A more temporary method for facial augmentation is with injectable fillers such as Restylane®, JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel, Sculptra® and RADIESSE®. These fillers must be repeated for continued results, but they are conveniently performed right in Dr. Chaboki's office and require little to no downtime.
