Wide or flared nostrils can be a distracting nasal trait that can draw attention away from the other attractive features of the face. Some men and women are unhappy with the appearance of their nostrils and want to reshape the base of their nose. Dr. Munique Maia is an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon who offers nostril reduction surgery at Maia Plastic Surgery in Tysons Corner, VA.

Wide or large nostrils are a common trait that can impact the balance of the nose. While you cannot change your genetics, rhinoplasty is an option to change the shape of your nose. Nostril reduction surgery can reshape the size and appearance of your nostrils to create a balanced, symmetrical nose that blends with your other facial features. This cosmetic surgery can help you feel more confident in your appearance if you are self-conscious of your wider or larger nostrils.

Alar Base Reduction Rhinoplasty

The alar base is the base of the nose where the nostrils reside. Many people are displeased with the width of the alar base and their nostril size. An alar base reduction surgery can minimize the width of the base of the nose and resize or reshape the nostrils without changing the rest of the nose shape. The effect is a nose that is more balanced in appearance, creating more harmony in the facial features.

If your only complaint with your nose shape is the wide base or large nostrils, alar base reduction surgery may be right for you. It can also be included with a complete rhinoplasty that addresses other features of the nose, including the nasal tip or bridge.
