nose reduction

What is nose reduction?

Nose reduction is a recommended treatment for patients with large widened nasal wings (nostrils) or prominent nostrils. The treatment consists of making a slight incision in the groove of the nose and removing the unwanted portion. After the procedure, the nose will look more balanced and clear, and the nostrils will be less noticeable.

This procedure depends on the characteristics of the patient and the extent of the nose widening, but can be combined with rhinoplasty if the patient wants a higher nose at the same time, or if the patient is concerned about the roundness of the nose.

List of concerns

  • Nostrils are noticeable and bothersome.
  • I want to reduce the size of my nostrils.
  • I want a smaller nose and sleeker lines.
  • I want to achieve natural beauty.

Characteristics of nose reduction

There are two types of nose reduction: cutting the inside of the nose and cutting the outside (front side) of the nose. This choice depends mainly on the degree of nasal fullness.

In Japan, medial incisions are mainly used because scars are less noticeable. However, if the surgery is performed properly, scars are rarely noticeable even through an external incision.

Risks and Side Effects

Nose reduction is a procedure that adjusts the size of the nose to balance the entire face, but may involve some risks and side effects.

The most common side effects following surgery are swelling, pain, and internal bleeding. These are usually expected to subside within one to two weeks, but due to individual differences, some patients may experience these symptoms for a longer period of time.

The risk of infection at the surgical site should also be considered. To prevent this, it is important to follow the postoperative instructions for proper care and to keep the affected area clean. If infection does occur, the use of antibiotics and additional treatment may be necessary.

As for scars, they are generally not noticeable in the end, as the surgery is carefully sutured along the lines. However, depending on the patient's constitution and the way scar tissue forms, scars may be more noticeable than expected.

Satisfaction with surgical results also varies from person to person. If the result differs from expectations, the patient may experience emotional stress. To prevent this, it is important to have a thorough consultation prior to surgery to gain a better understanding of expectations and actual results.
