What is the Going Rate for Nostril Reduction?

     Nostril reduction, if simple, may only cost $1000 to $2000, but this procedure is usually not performed in isolation.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

The best way to get a cost estimate for nostril narrowing is to send in pictures as there are different techniques used to do it. But if it is done in the office under local anesthesia, you can anticipate around $1500 to $2000.

Alar base reduction

Alar base reduction can range in cost from $1000 to $4000 as an in office procedure.  There are a variety of techniques to narrow nostrils and this can radically alter the price and scope of the procedure.  Keep in mind that nostrils are often best viewed as three dimensional structures and may benefit from other parts of the nose being manipulated to help reshape the nose.  For example, overly flaired nostrils are often seen in flatter noses and can be improved with both alar base reduction and projectio of the nasal tip.
