Can Alar Base Reduction Be Done to Narrow the Base of the Nose Without Decreasing the Size of Nostrils?
I just had revision rhinoplasty 3 weeks ago and an alar base reduction was also performed with incisions in the bottom of the nose. I still have flaring nostrils which will become more obvious as my bridge and tip decrease in swelling so i wanted to know if i could later undergo an alar base reduction under local to my to make the base more narrow without changing the nostrils as they are already small and i dont want it to impact my breathing. Is this possible at all?
