In open rhinoplasty, the scar is minuscule (3-4mm) located on the columella (skin between the 2 nostrils
) and is inconspicuous after few months if the operation is well performed.
In closed rhinoplasty, the scars are inside the nostrils
Sometimes, scars are done on the alae in the alar groove to reduce alar flaring.
