Alar Reduction

Nasal anatomy must be check in case of wide alar base.
Regular triangular shape of alar base is ideal. Patients with low nasal dorsum usually have isosceles triangle shaped alar base.
It can be improved with nasal dorsum augmentation. But cutting off inside of
alar rim skin in triangular shape and it need to be stitched again
Alar reduction
A verification of the anatomical
shape is needed first in case of the wide nasal alar.
01.Projection of nasal tip
02.Domal width
03.Width of alar rim
04.Shape of alar side wall : Straight or curved
05.Size and width of columella
06.Size, shape and symmetry of nostril
07.Shape and skin thickness of alar base
08.Width and shape of nostril sill

The anatomy of the nasal alar

There are many things need to be considered. Especially, alar base and nostril sill is the part of reduction. It is better to see its shape and width

Consideration of alar rim reduction
01.Nasal tip operation should be done first, Nasal tip projection changes shape of nostril.
When it is seen at front it makes nostril became smaller.
  • Before nasal tip projection

  • After nasal tip projection

02.There are 3 types of nostril.
A. roll B. flat C. notching Roll shape is the most beautiful shape.
  • Scroll type

  • flat type

  • depressed type

03.If nostril is normal or too small it is better not to perform alar reduction
04.Patients with thick and oily skin tend to have more visible scar
05.Alar reduction makes alar rim lower than what it is, it is better not to have alar rim reduction patient with low alar rim..
06.Result of alar rim reduction is more visible on basal view. But the difference probably not shown at front view. Patients might think nostril
still looks wide from front even though it looks small (photo – Nasal front and basal view difference)
  • Front and bottom side looks different

  • Front and bottom side looks different

07.There would be alar rim deformity could happen when nasal skin is too thick and firm
08.If patients with wide domal width makes nasal tip looks more stubby.
Surgical method
AONE’s unique way: Triangular flap method
01.There is low risk of scar due to short incision. Incision is only made on alar side wall and alar base.
Outer incision on alar side wall could make visible scar
02.Inserting the triangular flap to the nasal alar make the scar minimized and
the notching deformity is never occurred.
Aone’s unique method : Triangular flap method
01.Scar
02.Notching deformity
03.Saggy alar side wall
04.Under correction
05.Asymmetry
Aone’s unique triangular flap method has only short incision and minimum complication.
