When your nostrils are pointed upwards or appears in an unpleasant manner or when the nostrils are too obvious, an Alarplasty is a corrective surgery done to successfully solve the issue and it’s done on Local Anaesthetic.
What is Nostril Reduction Surgery?
Nostril reduction surgery or alar base reduction (alarplasty) is a cosmetic procedure that alters the lower part of the nose appearance and narrows the nostrils to make the nose more balanced within the whole face.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
People with wide and/or flared nostrils may benefit from this procedure.
How Is the Procedure Performed?
The surgery is performed by removing a wedge-shaped piece of soft tissue from the outer or lower base of your nostrils.
How long does the Procedure Take?
It takes about one hour to complete, and can be done under local anaesthesia.
What’s the importance of an Alarplasty?
The nose is considered by plastic surgeons as the focal point of attraction in the face, and its shape or “type” can widely vary between a person and another due to their ethnicity or race. The nose is divided in 3 areas, which are the bridge, the nasal tip and the alar rim-base, and any change in one of those nasal areas can drastically change the whole aspect of the face.
What is an Alarplasty?
According to experts, an Alarplasty (commonly called trimming of the nostril/alae) is a plastic surgery that allows narrowing the width of the nose by reducing the size and projection of the nasal wings. This procedure also allows improving the patient’s facial harmony and breathing.
Who can Undergo Alarplasty?
In general terms, any person who only wishes to reduce the width of his/her nasal wings can be a good candidate for an Alarplasty. Most experts say that, to determine if the nose has a “normal” width, you can draw an imaginary line from the nasal wings end to the point where the eye of each side begins. If those points match, you have a normal width in your nose.
Who is a Qualified Doctor for an Alarplasty?
It is important to know that only a qualified plastic surgeon can decide who is a good candidate for an Alarplasty because the width of the nose must be harmonious and proportional with the other facial structures. The surgeon will determine the best alar size to guarantee proper breathing.
What Must I Know Before Having Alarplasty?
You must visit a plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. During the consultation you must ask the doctor any question about the procedure and the recovery process.
