Nose Narrowing

If your nostrils flare wider than those of the typical nose, or if your nostril area is wider at the base, nose narrowing rhinoplasty surgery may be right for you.

Contrary to common assumption, the nostrils themselves are not made of cartilage. Instead, they are composed of fatty skin tissue. During alar base resection, or nose narrowing, some of this fatty tissue is removed. There are multiple techniques for tissue removal in this area, and your plastic surgeon will determine the optimal method for correcting your nasal issues.
