Which treatment would I need to narrow my wide nose & nostrils?
I first like to discuss the overall look of the nose with the pt. . I take a magazine , like vogue , and I discuss the look of the noses from the various models with the pt. . I then will modify the approach according to the pt's wishes.
There are various ways to do a nose job. The old way , which I don't like, is called destructive Rhinoplasty this is where the surgeon removes bone and cartilage.
I like to do reshaping Rhinoplasty .The bone and the cartilage is what gives shape to the nose. Excess cartilage and bone are removed where necessary but the nose is reshaped by changing the shape of the cartilages by using suturing techniques and utilizing cartilage grafts ( please see accompanying video).
I would narrow the bridge of your nose and also make sure that the final height of the bridge of your nose is appropriate for your face .
I would conservatively thin the cartilage over the tip of your nose . I would use a suturing technique to narrow the angles of the tip cartilages . I would slightly increase the angle of the tip of your nose .
Anlar rim reduction narrows your nostrils .
I hope this information is helpful to you

Rhinoplasty , some advices:
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us.
In this regard, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.
