Alar base surgery refers to the shape and symmetry of your alar base and nostrils of your nose. This area of your nose plays a significant role in the appearance of your nose. For many Asians, this type of surgery is used to reduce a broad alar base. At times, this type of surgery needs to be combined with supplementary surgical techniques to achieve an aesthetically balanced appearance.
A common question concerning this type of procedure involves the recovery. Firstly, it’s important to understand that there is very little noticeable scarring after this procedure. There is very little swelling and almost no bruising after this type of procedure.
As with any surgical procedure, there will be a period of recovery and healing. If you are considering a nostril reduction procedure, it will be reassuring to you to learn that this type of recovery process is not long or drawn out. If you follow Dr. Ransom’s post-operative care instruction, you’ll be feeling better within a few days to a week from the date of your procedure.
