Create slim and elegant nose

By reducing the overall width of the nose, we can achieve a slim nose shape that matches the facial proportions and balance.

Concerns because of the big nostrils

Even if a patient wants to reduce the size of the nostrils, we do not simply consider the shape of the nose as the only issue. Accurate diagnosis is performed to prevent any potential functional problems that may arise from the surgery. Instead of following a specific surgical method, alar resection can be performed in various ways depending on the patient's condition.

A harmonious and refined nose line is created by reducing

Alar Resection Surgery Method

Learn about AB Plastic Surgery's Alar Resection Surgery Method.

Large Nostrils

When the alar appears wide due to large nostrils, we cut a portion of the nasal tissue from the alar
and suture the incisions to achieve a narrower and more proportionate alar base.

Surgery Method

The inner skin of the alar is cut

Surgery Method

The nostrils and suture are reshaped

Wide Lower Nostrils

When there is excessive tissue on the nostrils or the nostrils themselves are not large, but the lower part of the nostrils appears wide,
the alar is narrowed by making small incisions in the lower part of the nostrils and using stitches to narrow the alar region.

Surgery Method

The thread at both sides of the alar is inserted

Surgery Method

The thread are pulled to narrow the alar
