Nostril Reduction Boston, MA

When the nostrils are overly large, they draw attention to the nose. The “perfect” nose is one that blends well with your other facial features and allows your eye, lips and other focal features to shine through. If a wide nose or large nostrils make you self-conscious of your nose, rhinoplasty may be right for you. Dr. Daniel Del Vecchio at Back Bay Plastic Surgery can reshape your nose with nostril reduction surgery at our facility in Boston, MA.

The alar base of the nose is the bottom portion of the nose where the nostrils meet the lower cheek. When the alar base is wide, the nostrils are usually large and disproportionate with the rest of the nose. Wide noses are common in many ethnic groups, but when the nostrils are more visible, it can be distracting. To reduce the size of the nostrils, alar base reshaping is usually performed to create a more balanced nose appearance.

Alar Base Reduction Rhinoplasty

To shrink the size of the nostrils, a small wedge of cartilage along the outside of the nasal wall can be removed. This can bring the nostrils closer together and reduce the overall width of the alar base. The incision is placed along the crease where the nostril meets the cheek. When the incision heals, the scar is barely visible, as it is hidden with the crease of the nose.
