What is Columella / Alar Base Correction?

Columella is the bridge of tissue separating the nostrils. It is ideal to have the columella protruded approximately 1 to 2mm when looking from the side. Therefore, it should be corrected when it appears to be too retracted or hanged. Alar base correction is to correct the profile view of the nose by injecting fillers or inserting an implant or cartilage onto the alar base.

Columella in Proportion to Other Facial Parts
Rhinoplasty is not just about raising the nose bridge, but creating the nose in proportion to the nose bridge, columella and nasolabial angle as well as the entire face. In case of the retracted columella, it could be corrected by grafting the septal cartilage or ear cartilage. Especially, septal extension graft is effective and is a very ideal procedure and effective.
Finishing Touch Rhinoplasty, Alar Base Correction
When the tip of the nose is raised through a nose plastic surgery, the skin on the nostril is likely to stretch and droop, resulting in an awkward image. Since the alar base correction is to raise the alar base itself in three-dimensional, the columella would not get stretched even if the nose tip is elevated..
