[BK Plastic Surgery] Nose surgery: Nosewing reduction(Weir reduction)

BK Plastic Surgery Hospital
Nose surgery: Nosewing Reduction

Today we are talking about 
nosewing reduction, one of surgical methods of nose surgery.

There are two kinds of nosewing reduction,
such as alar base reduction and nostril fastening.

 Alar Base Reduction 

Wide nosewing is often a result of 
excessive skin or subcutaneous tissues. 

Alar base reduction involves excision of excessive skin at the base of nosewing, 
which reduces the size of nostrils.

Excision scars, formed between the nostrils and cheeks, 
are nearly invisible after 2~3 months.

 Nostril Fastening 

Nostrils that are wide at the bottom can be tightened with sutures 
after shallow resection has been made around the alar base. 

Scars are formed between the bottom of nose and philtrum, 
making it difficult to notice under the nose shadow.
