Visible scar after alar base reduction. Can the scar be removed? (Photo)

Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
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.

I would suggest that you speak with your surgeon regarding your concern with your incisions as he she knows best where you are in the healing process. With that said, you are in the early stages of healing so time is on your side. Best regards, Michael V. Elam, M.D.
Alar Base Scar
You will need to heal first to determine what the scar looks like. Sometimes it can be a pleasant surprise. Be patient. Best of luck!

Thank you for your question. A scar takes a few months to mature so give it a little more time. It is not unusual for scars to be red for up to 2 months after surgery. If it does not look good after 6-12 months then there are options to remove it (lasers, dermabrasion, scar revisions etc).
Scar will fade with time
It is really too soon to judge your results. Scars fade with time. At only a week post op, you are literally in the infancy of your healing process. Follow your surgeon's post op protocol to the letter and all should be fine.
