Nostrils size is a common concern for rhinoplasty patients who seek nose job surgery. Ethnic rhinoplasty for large nostrils frequently addresses wide nostrils or a wide base of the nose. Alar base reduction or nostril reduction surgery can not only make the base of the nose narrower but will make the nostrils smaller. The incisions for alar base reduction are made in the nostril sill and around the edge of the nostril where it meets the cheek. These scars are well hidden and eventually fade in these shadowed areas. Alar flare or nostril flare can also be corrected with nostril reduction surgery.
