Alarplasty: What does it involve?

Alarplasty, also known as nostril reduction, is a surgical procedure that reduces the size of the nostrils to create a nose that blends harmoniously with the rest of the face. It is particularly suitable for people of ethnic origin with larger-than-average nostrils, which is a common anatomical feature in certain ethnic groups.

Alarplasty is a technique used in ethnic rhinoplasty to correct congenital nasal asymmetries. In most cases, wide or prominent nostrils create excessive width and asymmetry at the base of the nose.

Nostril reduction procedure in Türkiye

In alarplasty, the width and length of the nostrils are reduced by removing a small wedge of skin from the side of the nose. To achieve this, the surgeon mainly follows the classic canons of beauty, according to which the width of the nose should be equal to the distance between the inner parts of the eyes.

Wing reduction is performed under local or general anesthesia, depending on the extent and complexity of the case. During this minimally invasive procedure, which lasts between 30 minutes and 1 hour, the plastic surgeon turns the nostrils inward to narrow the nostrils and create a more refined nose. Next, incisions are made inside the nose to narrow the deformed nostrils and remove excess skin covering the soft tissues of both nostril corners. These are often made between the nostrils and the cheek. At the end of the operation, the surgeon will make sure that all the incisions are securely sutured, guaranteeing a new symmetrical appearance of the nose, very close to the natural one.

Alarplastie avec technique de résection tridimensionnelle

Traditional alarplasty does not always satisfy every aesthetic desire. For more precise, personalized results, three-dimensional (3D) resection is emerging as an innovative technique.

This revolutionary method makes it possible to reshape the nostrils with unrivalled precision, in both length and width, without leaving visible scars.

Three-dimensional resection is not limited to the nostrils. It can also be used to refine the bridge of the nose, for a more harmonious, elegant profile. 

Whether you want to correct overly wide or prominent nostrils, or simply refine your profile, three-dimensional resection offers a discreet, tailor-made solution.

Post-operative phase

Unlike traditional rhinoplasty, which involves reshaping the bones and cartilage of the nose, nasal wing reduction focuses solely on the skin and soft tissues of the nostrils.

Because of its less invasive nature, nasal wing reduction offers several advantages over full rhinoplasty, including:

  • Less postoperative pain and discomfort.
  • Less swelling and bruising.
  • Faster recovery time.
  • Discreet scarring.

Although visible swelling disappears quickly after alarplasty, slight internal swelling may persist for several months and may take up to three to six months to disappear completely.
