What is alar reduction surgery?

Alar reduction surgery makes a nose harmonious with the face by reducing alar.

If nostrils are too big and alar is too big, the shape of a nose is hard to look attractive. In case that alar is big and wide, the nose look flatter than it really is, and nostrils look bigger than they are. In this case, this problem will not be solved even by performing surgery to raise the nose. It is alar reduction to reduce the size of nostrils.

Alar reduction surgery makes the ideal shape of a nose by reducing the whole width of alar.
Ruby's alar reduction surgery reduces the whole size of a wide nose and makes it look small, which will make a dull impression into a refined one.
