My nostrils and the base of my nose are usually quite small. But sometimes, for example when I breath faster, my nostrils don't just flare a bit, but they get really really big. Is there any surgery that can be done to get rid of those excessive nose flaring? Maybe a technique that doesn't involve a incision in the crease where the nostril wall meets the cheek, because the base of my nose is already really small.

It is very important to examine the results of your plastic surgeon prior to surgery in order to see their experience with this procedure.
