How can I achieve slightly wider nostrils?

Q: Hi I was just wondering if my nostrils can be stretched open ever so slightly…or would I need a whole nose reconstruction for this to be possible…also would there be scarring?

A: There are a few ways your nostrils could be widened during rhinoplasty (alar batten grafts, lateral crural strut grafts) and the incisions could be designed to be hidden from view – so the scars would not be visible.
