Open techniques- The incision is at the columella along with the infracartilagenous incisions.

Recovery and results-
Some swelling, bruising, pain is common and will recover in few days. Nose may be kept packed for few hours after surgery. Nasal splint is applied for 6-8 days. External stitches will be removed after 8 days.
