Nostril Reduction (Alarplasty)
What is Nostril Reduction Surgery (Alarplasty)?
Nostril reduction surgery, or alarplasty, is a type of cosmetic surgery that alters the appearance and narrows the span and base of the nostrils to make the nose appear more balanced and symmetrical with the remainder of the face. People with wide and/or flared nostrils may consider this type of surgery. The surgery is performed by surgically removing a wedge-shaped piece from the outer or lower base of each of your nostrils.
How long does this surgical procedure take to do?
The surgery itself takes around one hour and is performed under local anaesthetic.
