Can Rhinoplasty fix big nostrils?

Nostril size and shape may vary from nose to nose. Depending on your ethnicity, a deviated septum, and the position of your tip cartilages, nostrils can all be different.

Rhinoplasty, or nose job surgery, can help change the nostril shape, make them smaller, and more symmetric. Correcting a deviated septum with septoplasty can make the nostrils more symmetric. Performing an alar base resection during rhinoplasty can bring in the nostrils and narrow the base.

The nostril length can be made smaller by manipulating the tip cartilages with sutures and making the nasal tip cartilages smaller or bringing the tip in.
