If you have wide, large, small or narrow nostrils, a rhinoplasty surgery can fix it. In this article, we explain about nostril reduction and nose job uneven nostrils.
The length between the bridge and the nasal tip is the main indicator of nose size, and the nostrils are on either side of the tip and separated by the nasal septum.
The size of the nose and the width of nostrils are related to genetic, environmental, and ethnic factors, also an accident or a previous nose job. Loss of collagen and elasticity by aging can cause the size and shape of the nose to change.

Changing all parts of nose such as bridge, tip and nostrils needs customized attention. People have various kinds of nostril size, shape, and width and each one has different goals for nostril reduction surgery.
The thickness and flaring of nostrils depends on the quantity of the fatty, fibrous, soft tissue of them. If you feel your nostrils are too big, or misshapen you can do an alar reduction rhinoplasty that is called alarplasty. Alarplasty is a surgery in which a small amount of skin is removed from the wing of the nose. This procedure can narrow the width of your nostrils or decrease their size.
A nostril reduction procedure takes about one hour under local anesthesia. This surgery has two methods, the first one is making an incision in the crease where the nostril attaches to the cheek, another one is performing rhinoplasty from the inside part of the nostrils.
The proper post-operative nostril size is different for everyone, and for the best result, the shape of your nostrils should be in proportion with your other facial features.
Uneven nostrils can be caused by genetic, a result of trauma, prior nose job, a deviation of the nasal septum, or a difference in the shape of the alar cartilage. As you know symmetry is synonymous with facial beauty, so you can solve this problem with a surgical or non-surgical rhinoplasty.
