Alar Base Reduction Surgery
Alar base reduction, also known as nostril reduction surgery, is a specialized cosmetic procedure designed to reduce the width of the nostrils and the base of the nose. This surgery is a key component of rhinoplasty (nose job) but can also be performed as a standalone procedure. Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Eric Cerrati in Salt Lake City uses this advanced procedure to create a more balanced and proportional nasal appearance, enhancing the overall facial harmony.
Are You an Ideal Candidate? Signs to Consider
This procedure might be ideal for you if:
- You feel that your nostrils are too wide or flared.
- There is an asymmetry between your nostrils.
- The base of your nose disproportionately affects your facial balance.
- You are in good overall health with realistic expectations.
An in-depth consultation with Dr. Cerrati will help determine if this surgery is suitable for your specific needs and aesthetic goals.
