Narrowing a wide no upward rotation and no cartilage grafting techniques
It is possible to narrow the nose without rotating it upwards. When patients have wide nasal bones, osteotomies are required to be placed in them.

The upper lateral cartilages in the midportion of the nose tend to follow the nasal bones after the osteotomies.
