Nose & Nostril Correction (Rhinoplasty & Alarplasty)


Are common cosmetic procedures which reshapes the nose to be made smaller, bigger, alter the shape of the tip or bridge, alter the angle between the upper lip and the nose, narrow the nostril openings (Alarplasty), or a combination to create proportional balance and enhance your face.

Best Candidates

During your consultation with the surgeon at the Clinic, the surgeon will review your medical history and then evaluate the structure of your nasal bones and cartilage, shape of your face, thickness of skin and your age.



Correction: Skin is separated from the underlying framework of the nose, and depending if the size is to be increased or reduced, the surgeon will manipulate the bone and cartilage to the desired shape.

Augmentation: A custom designed silicone implant is inserted in a pocket made at the bridge of the nose through an incision approximately 1 cm on the sides of the nostrils. Variations on this depend on the surgeon.

Alarplasty: Incisions are made to remove nasal skin and tissue at the base of the nose to make it more proportional with the width of the nose.

Time: 30 - 45 min (Alarplasty); 2+ hours (Augmentation, Reduction).

Anaesthesia: Local (Alarplasty); General (Rhinoplasty).

Hospitalisation: Day surgery (Alarplasty and Augmentation) 1 Night (Reduction).
