Rhinoplasty, alar (nostril) reduction

Have you ever heard the praise “Nose is the center of face”? Eyes are the part that creates overall impression of face, but the part that plays important role on balance and harmony of our face is Nose!
Especially, nostrils (alar) and nose tip are the most impressive part from the front view. When the nose alar is wide and big, the nostrils look big which creates dull impression and make the nose to appear low.
The ideal width of your alar is the same as the distance between your eyes, shorter than the width of your lips and has to be wider as it comes down.

Eye is a part that decides on whole impression on our face and that is why many people choose to get double eyelid surgery to improve on their impression in relatively quick and easy way.  However this also lead to the increase in number of people who are considering eyelid revision surgery due to side effects or after effect as double eyelid surgery is universalized.

You may find that there are freckles and other pigmentation appearing or getting more significant after summer’s strong sun light. Your skin would more likely lose its elasticity due to sudden aging.
