The procedure begins by separating the skin of the nose from its supporting network of bone and cartilage. This portion of the nose is sculpted to the patients desired shape and the skin is placed over the new framework of the nose. To finish the procedure, the incisions are then closed. The procedure may be performed through entirely internal incisions (endonasal) or including a small external incision (open approach).
