An Alar Base Reduction is one type of Rhinoplasty to reduce the width of the nose from nostril to nostril. It produces the best results when combined with a full Rhinoplasty, Septorhinoplasty or Tip Refinement surgery.

The alar base is the name for the lower part of the nose, where the nostrils are located. An Alar Base Surgery therefore works to improve the triangular aspect of the nose, from the nostrils to the nasal tip and can enhance your facial balance and aesthetic. It is often referred to as a ‘nostril reduction surgery’ or a ‘wide nose Rhinoplasty’ because of the transformative effects it produces.

    I really think highly of the aesthetic judgement of the nurse in 111Harley street as I received non-surgical rhinoplasty there. It’s very natural, not exaggerated. And the service there is excellent! It’s friendly to foreign customer since Miss Bonnie is a brilliant and patient interpreter.


    Had the best non surgical rhinoplasty experience! Many thanks to Nicky , she definitely has the best skills and knowledge and is very professional. Was slightly scared but she always re assured me and made me feel so comfortable.Will definitely recommend to all. Thanks a million!

    I underwent a open Septorhinoplasty on the 9th of January. I turned 25 a few days before my op I couldn’t think of a better way to start a new decade and chapter in my life. This is something I really wanted done for ten years and I’m really happy I finally got round to getting it done. 3 weeks post op currently and I can’t wait to see how the remaining 12 months go.
