Special Features of Alar Reduction

 

Surgical Procedure for Reducing the Width of the Alar Base

An incision of ½ is made inside the nostrils then crescent shaped resection of lateral area is performed and then it is sutured together. Through this method, a tip of the nose will look better.

 

No Visible Scars

If the lower parts of the nostrils are wide, the procedure to excise the nostrils into a diamond shape and gather them will be performed. Since an incision is only made on the alar base, it leaves no visible scars. Also, even if an incision is made at the outside of the alar, a scar can be concealed.

 

No Damage on Facial Muscle

It is rather common to have the nasal alae that get broaden when smile. This may be caused by facial muscles adjacent to the nasal alae. Therefore, it is important not to damage and/or insect the facial muscles adjacent to the nasal alae to achieve a natural look and avoid asymmetry or any facial discomfort after the surgery.
