Dealing with a bulbous Nose-Alar Base reduction.
Patients with a nose which is bulbous and too wide are interested in narrowing their wide nostrils at the base of their nose but many are afraid of obvious scars or of having a distorted or pinched look.
The complaint of a nostril that is too wide is a problem which we more frequently encounter among many patients, and especially in certain ethnic groups.
Alar base reduction surgery poses a unique set of difficulties. There is the potential for these sorts of problems if nostril narrowing is not planned and done properly but, with care and appropriate technique, this can be a really nice finishing touch to a great Rhinoplasty.
If done correctly, the scars are well concealed under no tension whatsoever, so they tend to heal invisibly within a couple of weeks even in ethnic patients and thicker-skinned patients. The natural curve of the nostril is maintained. The normal crease between the nostril and cheek is preserved. And, best of the all, this one procedure can be individually tailored to each nose to variably address nostril width, nostril flare, and to improve the internal shape of the nostril.
