Is it possible to have alar base reduction under local anaesthetic?

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Asked on 18 May 2014


I had rhinoplasty 4 years ago. I am happy with the result, however I feel my nostrils are too wide. Do you perform Alar Reduction? If so can this be performed under local anaesthetic?


Yes indeed, I am happy to carry out alar base reduction under local anaesthetic, and this is the typical procedure in my practice if it is performed separately.
