What is DA’s Alar Reduction?

  • If the alar is wide and big compared to the width of the nasal bridge, it gives a stubby image even to a beautiful face.
  • DA’s alar reduction involves reducing the alar width to create a more clear facial image. It’s for those who have unclear facial image due to wide alar.

Why DA’s Alar Reduction?

  • Improving nasal tip
    Improving flat and wide alar to improve stubby nasal tip
  • Correcting nose shape
    Correcting the thickness and shape of the alar
  • Sharp nasal line
    Correcting the size of nasal tip and alar
  • Natural nose shape
    Completing natural and sharp nasal line

Candidates for DA Alar Reduction

  • 01CASE Those who have stubby
    nose due to wide alar
  • 02CASE Those who have wide nasal tip
    compared to the nasal bridge
  • 03CASE Nose looks flat
    due to wide alar
  • 04CASE The shape of the alar and
    the facial shape is not in proportion
  • 05CASE Alar width is wider
    than the nasal bridge

DA’s Alar Reduction Surgical Method

  • CASE. 01 Alar sill excision Reducing the alar by excising the skin. Incision is made on the bottom of the nostril and reducing the size and width of the nostrils.
  • CASE. 02 Nostrils pulled together Short incision is made on the bottom of the nostrils and tying the nostrils together by a thread to reduce the wide nostrils.

DA Nose Surgery selects the best implant to perform safe and effective surgery

  • 01 Ear Cartilage Ear cartilage is the best implant that can be easily collected and gives natural nasal tip shape. To prevent ear shape deformation, collecting the cartilage from the inside of the ear will result in minimal scarring that cannot be seen from the outside.
  • 02 Nasal septum The nasal septum is the wall between the nostrils that separates the two nasal passages and supports the nose and is a good implant to use during nose length extension. Nasal septum can be collected from the nostrils so additional incision isn’t necessary.
  • 03 Rib Cartilage Less chance of infection and can collect large amounts, so its useful for nasal tip and nasal bridge correction. Used in cases of enlarging the nose more than 7mm, need revision between the two nasal passage, and in revision surgery.
  • 04 Alloderm It’s called artificial skin as it removed chemical substances that may cause immune rejection and is prone to infection and create smooth skin. It can protect the skin and used on nasal tips to make the skin thicker and smoother.
