Dr. Mike Majmundar, double board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon, performs no scar rhinoplasty for the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.
Every year in Atlanta and the rest of the country, over half a million people are interested in rhinoplasty, or improving the appearance of their nose. But in Atlanta and elsewhere, one thing is clear: nothing has a greater impact on how a person looks than the size and shape of the nose. Dr. Mike Majmundar is one of only a few surgeons in Atlanta, and in Georgia, who can perform his rhinoplasties using a no scar approach (No Scar Rhinoplasty).
The advantages of a no scar rhinoplasty, also known as closed, or endo-nasal rhinoplasty, is decreased recovery time, swelling, and time under anesthesia. Some noses require much more work, or may be difficult to sculpt, using a no scar or “closed” approach; as a result, a small horizontal incision may be required between the nostrils. This incision heals very well, but we prefer to avoid incisions, if possible.

Making The Decision For No Scar Rhinoplasty
Whether the rhinoplasty is desired for functional or cosmetic reasons, in Atlanta or elsewhere, your choice of a qualified facial plastic surgeon is of paramount importance. Dr. Majmundar is double board certified in otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, as well as facial plastic and reconstructive surgery, which provides you, the patient, with the highest level of training and expertise. He is also one of only a few surgeons who can perform a no scar rhinoplasty in Atlanta, the state of Georgia, or in the Southeast.
Dr. Majmundar and Dr. Lipin will examine the structure of your nose, both externally and internally, to evaluate what you can expect from rhinoplasty and whether or not you are a candidate for a no scar rhinoplasty. You will more likely to be pleased with the results of your surgery if you have a realistic idea of what nasal surgery can, and cannot, do for you. We perform all of our surgeries in accredited outpatient surgery centers in Atlanta and surrounding areas, and we only use board certified MD anesthesiologists for your safety.
Understanding No Scar Rhinoplasty
The incisions are made inside the nose so that there are no scars on the face. Next, certain amounts of underlying bone and cartilage are removed, added to, or supported, to provide a newly shaped nasal structure. The tissues are then redraped over the new frame and the incisions are closed. A splint is applied to the outside of the nose to help retain the new shape while the nose heals.
What To Expect After No Scar Rhinoplasty
In the immediate days following your rhinoplasty, you may experience bruising and minor swelling in the eye area. Applying cold compresses and keeping the head elevated often reduces the swelling, bruising and discomfort. The nasal splint is removed seven days after surgery, at which time you will see your new nose. Recovery, on average, varies from 7 to 10 days, with pain medications needed the first 1-2 nights.
