During ethnic rhinoplasty, the nostril size is frequently reduced. There are a few important aspects of the nostrils that should be discussed in regards to ethnic rhinoplasty. The width of the nostrils can be brought in with small triangular excision of skin at the sill or floor of the nose. If the nostrils have flare, then a small wedge of skin can be removed from the alar-facial groove. Combined, these two maneuvers can create narrower, more refined, and smaller nostrils during ethnic rhinoplasty.
