Closed Rhinoplasty: This type is used for minor nose reshaping. Incisions can be made within the nose. The skin of the nose is done apart from bone and cartilage. These can be removed, reshaped, augmented to achieve the desired new shape.

Secondary Rhinoplasty: This is performed to correct problems after a previous nose surgery. The problems may be more complicated which makes the secondary rhinoplasty more difficult.
