Narrowing Wide Nose Through Rhinoplasty

On so many occasions what we do is we’ll narrow the nasal bones with osteotomy that’s making cuts in the nasal bones themselves and then just narrowing them in a tripod fashion and then the corresponding upper lateral cartilage is also getting narrowed and then we can narrow wide nostrils as well that’s called an alarplasty procedure that involves some little incisions right at the nostril sill right here to narrow wide nostrils to narrow the wide nose we usually are performing a hump removal first the hump is shaved down off the top of the bridge and then the nasal bones themselves have to be narrowed to prevent an open roof flattop nasal deformities we have to narrow the nasal bones and the corresponding upper lateral cartilages in the mid portion of the nose otherwise the nose will be out of balance.
