Patients with wide nostrils such as ethnic rhinoplasty patients frequently ask about the scarring around their nostrils. The scar is placed in the nasal sill and then around the junction of the nostril with the face in a shadowed region. This scar is easily hidden with makeup at 2-3 weeks but will take 3-6 months to be imperceptible without makeup. This technique is frequently used in ethnic rhinoplasty or in patients with flared nostrils.
