The nose is considered by plastic surgeons as the centre 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.

In fact, many of them say that rhinoplasty (or the surgical procedure to change the nose’s shape) can be classified in two types, nose augmentation or nose reduction. The nose augmentation is usually performed in Asians and consists in changing the aspect of the nasal bridge when the patient has a flat nose.


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 the breathing.

The Alarplasty can be performed as an isolated procedure or as a part of a complete rhinoplasty. In both cases, the results are dramatic and the plastic surgeon always tries to make them as natural as possible.


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.

However, 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 a proper breathing.

Finally, as it was said before, this procedure can be used as a complement of a complete rhinoplasty to create a proper facial harmony on par with world class expectations making the candidate rather attractive.


What Must I Know Before Having Alarplasty?

You must visit a plastic surgeon to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure, the best way to perform the Alarplasty and to fill the medical history. During this consultation you must ask the doctor any question about the procedure and the recovery process.

Here at Glojas Plastic Surgery Centre, our In-House Plastic Surgeon is one of Malaysia’s leading Plastic Surgeons and is also Malaysia’s ONLY Craniofacial Surgeon with 15 years of rich experience, knowledge and talent. Dr.Mohd Ali is highly trusted and acclaimed around the world.

One must know that an Alarplasty is considered an outpatient procedure, so you will go home the same day that the procedure is performed. This procedure is done on Local Anaesthesia hence making the procedure very safe and free from complications. The Candidate will be in proper health to leave our medical practice once the procedure is done.

The recovery time after an Alarplasty is shorter than other cosmetic surgeries and you can obtain the final results after one or two months, which is the moment when swelling and bruising disappear.
