Dr. Freeman will perform either closed or open rhinoplasty.  During closed rhinoplasty, Dr. Freeman will make small incisions inside your nose where they are not visible.  There is less swelling and bruising following closed rhinoplasty.  If a patient requires significant changes to the projection in the tip of their nose, Dr. Freeman will perform open rhinoplasty. During this procedure, he makes an incision between the nostrils to gain access to the nose’s interior.  Recovery from open rhinoplasty usually takes longer than recovery from closed rhinoplasty and the patient may experience more swelling and bruising.

If you are not happy with the appearance of your nose, rhinoplasty surgery can help.  Call Charlotte’s top rhinoplasty surgeon, Dr. M. Sean Freeman to discuss your surgery options.
