Careful with alar base reduction

When it comes to alar base reduction, I can’t stress enough how important it is to get it right the first time! If done poorly, it is difficult to improve with a later revision. When done well, the scar is nearly imperceptible. Often it is not the only procedure needed to improve a nose, even though it may be your main complaint. Whenever you affect one part of the nose, it changes the relationship and proportion of the other units of the nose. The entire nose needs to be evaluated, including your breathing. I would definitely recommend consulting with a board certified Plastic Surgeon or Facial Plastic Surgeon who has experience with rhinoplasty and alar base reductions. If you are in the Los Angeles area, I would be happy to see you.

There are many wonderful surgeons in the Los Angeles/Beverly Hills area that are qualified to perform a alar base reduction.  Select a surgeon that is Board Certified and that has performed an abundance of Rhinoplasties.  You many need to consult with a couple of surgeons before you have a good connection.  Good Luck!

 Ala base reduction is not a complication procedure and can be performed with or without a Rhinoplasty.  I'd have to see you in consultation or a photo of your nose front and base views to see if this is the right procedure for you aesthetically.

Alar Base Reduction?

Your entire nose needs be evaluated by a rhinoplastic surgeon well versed in your type of nose which I assume is ethnic in nature. Alar base reduction is misnomer since it is nasal base that usually needs to be reduced and most often is not. Alar reduction is what is usually performed and basically reduces the flaring of alae and does not address the width of nasal base.  Alar and nasal base need to be reduced at same time. Alar Repositioning Technique will address both without scar formation.
