Preservation rhinoplasty versus Open rhinoplasty

Many of my Houston rhinoplasty patients are beginning to ask about preservation rhinoplasty as an option for their nose surgery.  The concept behind preservation rhinoplasty for a dorsal hump is to fracture the nasal bones surrounding the hump and push the hump down as opposed to traditional open or closed rhinoplasty where the dorsal hump is resected.  The issue with preservation rhinoplasty is that the stability of the nose is compromised with the excessive fracturing of the nose.  In addition, the dorsal hump can return with preservation rhinoplasty.  Dr. Funk continues to get great results with traditional open rhinoplasty for his patients.  


Dr. Funk is a top rhinoplasty surgeon in Houston Texas.
