Best Way to Re-Shape Nostrils
There are many ways to refine nostrils, it is not limited to just alar reduction. In fact, alar reduction is the least used method to reshape nostrils. The cartilages underlying the nostrils are usually reshaped to change the nostril shape. As with any aesthetic treatment, the most important aspect for the patient is taking the time to choose their surgeon most carefully. Good luck and be well.
Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
