What is Alar Base Reduction?

In cases with a large laterally widespread alar, the nostril looks big and the nose seems like it is low profile. This gives one an unsophisticated impression.

In such cases, alar base reduction can reduce the width of the alar, engendering an ideal nose. It is a relatively simple procedure, leaving an incision line only along the end of the nasal alar and cheek border. Thus, surgical scars are barely visible and the nasal alar size can be effectively reduced.
