Shorter or wider noses tend to have larger nostrils. This nose shape is common in many ethnic groups, with some people having more pronounced nostrils than others. The alar base is the bottom portion of the nose that extends from the outside of the base of each nostril. When the alar base is too wide, it can create larger or flared nostrils that are distracting to the eyes.
Flaring nostrils are not just a balance issue with the nose. When people are angry or upset, it is natural for the nostrils to flare. Wide nostrils can create an angry appearance to the face, even when the individual is feeling happy and content. Reducing the nostril size can improve both nose balance and the emotional factors.
