Can my uneven nostrils be fixed after an alar reduction? (photos)
Perfect is the enemy of good. I don't see a major issue with your ala, which doesn't mean that you don't see one. The trouble is that small things are difficult to correct and that in tryng to modify the ala you could convert something that only you see into something that everyone sees.

Asymmetry following alar base reshaping.
Alar base reshaping procedures are deceptively tricky, particularly from the perspective of creating perfect symmetry. Moving an alar base attachment inferiorly is much more challenging than moving it superiorly due to the recoil forces on the ala when trying to stretch it downwards.

Uneven Nostrils After Alar Reduction
You can have a revision under local anesthesia, if you choose, to reduce the alar flare on one side. I disagree that you look weird but the nostrils can be improved.
