Narrowing of the nostrils surgery

Nostril tightening

Are your nostrils wider than you would like? A minor procedure can take care of that for you. The small incisions are made at the base of the nose to ensure that scars will be barely visible afterwards. Suffice to say that every nose is different. That is why nose surgery always requires an individual approach. You will discuss the details of the procedure with your surgeon during a consultation.

Correcting uneven, small, or large nostrils

The nose is basically the central feature of the face. Large or small nostrils can have a major effect on the overall facial appearance. A subtle correction will often be enough to give your face a more balanced look.

Curious about previous results? Be sure to take a look at our nostril correction before and after pictures. Below we will tell you more about the options we offer for rhinoplasty, i.e. external nose reshaping surgery.

Nostril reduction

The main reason why people go for nostril correction surgery is because they feel their nostrils are too big. Oversized nostrils mean that your nose covers a larger part of your face, drawing attention to the nose. Nostril reduction is the solution in that case.

Wide nose rhinoplasty

In some cases, the nostrils in themselves are not very large, but they are very prominent due to their width. In this case, we will make the nose narrower by reducing the width of the nostrils. This will make the nose a less prominent presence on the face. A minor procedure with a visually highly impactful result.

Nasal tip correction

In case of a very bulbous, overprojected, or crooked nasal tip, you can opt for nasal tip correction surgery. It can help you get rid of an upturned nose, for example, and make sure your nose is a less prominent feature on your face and in your profile.

Nasal bridge correction

A nasal bump, such as in the centre or at the top, will make your nose look hooked or overprojected. This can be solved with nasal bridge correction surgery. If you want to find out more about this, take a look at our dedicated page about nasal bridge correction surgery.

They will assess what shape nose would be the best fit with your face and what procedures will be needed to reshape your nose.

Pros and cons of nostril correction surgery

Nostril correction surgery is a relatively minor and quick procedure, but one with grand results. The incisions are small and scars will be barely visible, because they will be hidden at the base of the nose. On top of that, this easily accessible procedure offers a wide array of possibilities, so that virtually every nose can be corrected down to the tiniest detail.

Bear in mind that you will have to take it easy for the first few weeks after the surgery, because heavy work, exercise, smoking, and alcohol may impede the recovery process and cause bleeding. Aside from that, the final result will not show until after a few weeks to a few months. So, be patient, knowing that the result will definitely be worth the wait!

The choice for nose surgery is one you don’t make lightly. And when you choose to have it done, you would like it to be at a safe clinic. At Wellness Kliniek, we boast many years of nose surgery experience. Our experienced surgeons know like no other how to turn your nose into a balanced end result. That is what has been drawing so many patients from across the globe to our clinic in Genk for so many years.

After a consultation with no strings attached, you will know exactly what to expect from nose surgery and you can decide whether or not to go ahead with it. Make an appointment now and go for the face of your dreams.

Who is nostril reduction surgery intended for?

The shape of your nose is very personal and has to perfectly fit the rest of your face. If you are unhappy with your nose, you can have nose surgery. Such a procedure is virtually always possible. If you are on blood thinners, drink a lot of alcohol, or smoke a lot, the doctor will ask you to stop doing that for some time before the surgery.

Nostril reduction: how does the procedure work?

Nostril correction surgery is a relatively quick procedure that will take approx. 25 minutes. Depending on the exact surgery, you will be put under sedation or general anaesthesia.

Next, an incision of around 1.5 centimetres is made at the base of the nose. This will leave a slight scar, but this will barely be visible after the surgery because it is tucked away at the base of the nose. The scar will fade with time.

The right bandage is applied and you can go home on the same day. Prefer to stay overnight at Wellness Kliniek? There is always the option to book a room. Most of the recovery takes place within a few days.

What to expect?

After the surgery, your face may look swollen and bruised around the nose and in some cases around the eyes as well, depending on the specifics of the procedure. This may last for a few weeks. The doctor will give you exact aftercare instructions, which are based on the surgery you had and which you must follow strictly for a speedy recovery.

In most cases, you will be told not to do exercise, not to do any (heavy) work and lifting, not to smoke, and not to consume alcohol for two weeks, as all these things may cause bleeding and infections. If you follow the instructions, the chances of complications will be next to zero. After a few weeks, you will see the final result.
