If my nose is lifted up – will the nostrils get smaller or it is separate procedures. My priority is fixing the nostrils.

Q: My nostrils are big and the annoying thing is they get bigger when I talk or laugh. If this is my biggest issue – can I fix it without putting a filler to my nose – It is great to have a taller nose, but it is not my priority. Also, if I can get my nostrils smaller – later on, If I want to lift up my nose, will it still be possible?Thanks.

A: Projecting the tip of your nose (making your tip taller) will reduce the flare of your nostrils but not significantly reduce the width.  Alar base reduction using incisions around your nostrils will be necessary to significantly reduce both the width and the flare of your nostrils.
