Complications in rhinoplasty

Preventing complications in rhinoplasty and septoplasty with minimally invasive surgery

Minimally invasive surgery has gained increasing prevalence in all the branches of modern surgery due to the reduced impact of the procedure, shortening of healing times, and increased predictability of the healing process that determine a better quality of the final result.

In rhinoplasty, as the technical manoeuvres are in the order of millimeters, the surgeon must utilize maximum precision at all times.

For over a decade, Dr. Pietro Palma has been using a hybrid approach (Hybrid Rhinoplasty™) inspired by minimally invasive surgery. His method combines the precision of open rhinoplasty with the reduced invasiveness of endonasal surgery (closed rhinoplasty). The methodological rigor and operational versatility offered by this approach maximize the success rate even in complex procedures, containing risks and complications.
