Question: I’m of Southeast Asian descent. I’d like to have a nostril reduction. How is this performed?
Answer: There are a variety of methods for performing nostril reduction. There are techniques which reduce the width of the nostrils or the ala. There are also techniques where if the wall of the nostril is just thick it is actually thinned out. There are also techniques where sutures are placed to bring the base of the nose into a narrower position. Where the incisions are placed and how it is performed is very, very specific and depends on the type of reduction that is necessary.
