Nostril Narrowing Case 2


Nostril narrowing may be an additional component to Rhinoplasty. The aim is to reduce the width of the nose’s lowest segment. To bring the outer walls of the nostril openings, the alar walls or “wings” closer in. A portion of the nostril opening is removed, and the alar walls are brought in. The incision is hidden in the crease between the wing and upper lip.  A small portion of the incision is hidden on the floor of the nasal passage. Generally, healing is excellent and rapid yielding with fine, hidden incisions. Nostril narrowing can be done as an independent procedure or an adjunct to a Rhinoplasty or internal operation for breathing. It does not diminish breathing and does not influence any external features.
