Reduce the length of the nostrils

The reduction of nostrils is a very frequent request in cosmetic surgery during a rhinoplasty. Indeed, many patients complain of having nostrils that are too wide or too large, which give the appearance of a flared nose and lack definition.

This information sheet was written in June 2021 by Dr. Ralph ABBOU who is a plastic surgeon in Paris specializing in rhinoplasty.

Dr Ralph ABBOU defended his medical thesis on the subject of rhinoplasty and has published several scientific publications on the subject.

Dr Ralph ABBOU participates in several congresses per year in France and abroad in order to maintain and perfect his theoretical and technical skills.

What is nostril reduction ?

In the context of an ethnic rhinoplasty, some patients request a reduction of the nostrils.

The dimensions of the nostril openings are very variable. They depend on the following parameters:

  • The width of the nostrils
  • The shape of the cartilages of the tip of the nose: the winged cartilages
  • The projection of the tip of the nose and the position of the nasal septum.
  • The thickness of the skin of the nose

Why would you want to reduce your nostrils?

The goals of nostril reduction are:

  • All patients who wish to refine the tip of the nose and improve its definition
  • All patients who wish to reduce the diameter of the nostrils and their width
