Alar Reduction
Department Plastic Surgery > Nose > Nose wing reduction

In general, the nose of Asian people is relatively flatter and wider. If the nose is flat and the rounded sides of the nose are slightly wide, augmentation rhinoplasty alone produces a sufficient effect. However, if the nose is too wide, a surgery to cut and remove skin around the outside of the nose is also performed.


Operative Method

1. After alar reduction design, local anesthesia is administered.

2. An incision is made along the design line. Then, skin in the incision area is removed.

3. The remaining tissues are sutured up to decrease the alar width.

4. Stitches are removed five days after surgery.
