I would charge about $1500 US dollars for only alar plasty, to be more precise alar wedge excisions.
You should not look for bargains when it comes to alar plasty. If you end up having uneven nostrils or too narrow nostrils, the damage can be IRREVERSIBLE. So, please concentrate on finding someone who can do an excellent, safe and conservative alarplasty for you.
Alarplasty cost is between $2,000 and $3,000.
An alarplasty costs is probably in the $2,000 to $3,000 range depending upon whether it is done under general anesthesia. This is typically much less than the full rhinoplasty procedure since it is just an alar base reduction.

Alarplasty takes much less time than a formal open rhinoplasty procedure. Therefore, the cost is typically less. However, alarplasty is typically not performed in isolation. Once you change 2 legs of the tripod, more work may be necessary.
The fee for alarplasty will vary by city and state.
There are several types of alarplasty for the nose to decrease or change the nostril size or shape. To do it alone is possible, but more likely you would want something done to the tip of your nose as well. And that might require some changes to the upper part of your nose as well. So a specific fee could not be stated without seeing what you wanted to have done to your nose.
Prices for alarplasty
All you can do is call multiple doctors in your country and area and get a range of prices. There is no standardized price for this or any other cosmetic surgery.
Alarplasty as an isolated procedure would cost $2000-$2500. However, it is unusual that alar alteration is the only thing done in a rhinoplasty operation. Remember changing the nasal base will also change the appearance of the rest of the nose.
