    Bulbous Tip Correction and Alar ReductionWhat are Alar Reduction and Bulbous Tip Correction?

    Alar Reduction and Bulbous Tip Correction

    A nose with a wide alar base and gives an impression of easygoing person.
    In the past in Korea, this shape of the nose received compliments. However, this nose is not attractive anymore these days due to its dull impression. In particular, many Asians consider this nose shape to be inferior. The causes of bulbous nose are: excessively developed cartilage of the nasal tip; abnormal spread of the cartilage to both sides of the nose; excessive flesh between the nose tip and alar. Considering individuals’ face and needs, we create a sharp and slim nasal tip for you by revising cartilage and/or removing fat layers under the alar skin.

    JW does not only reduce the size of the nasal tip but also corrects bulbous tip through reshaping of the nasal tip and refining thick skin tissues.

    Bulbous Tip Correction and Alar ReductionThe Golden Ratio of the Nose to the Face

     
    Bulbous Tip Correction and Alar Reduction
     

    The ideal width of the alar base is one-fifth of the width of the face. The face looks beautiful when the width of the alar base equals to the gap between the eyes, the so-called glabella. It is ideal that the nose looks like an equilateral triangle from a bottom view and the length of the nostrils is two-thirds of the total length of the nose.

    • 01. Careful and detailed correction! 
      Alar correction, which reduces the size of the nostrils, is concurrently operated with the nasal tip correction, which refines the cartilage of the nasal tip, for a complete reshaping of the nose.
    • 02. Beautiful and natural-looking nose line without an implant is completed! 
      Without adding any artificial implants, the small wedges of the nose or the nasal tip are reshaped.

In addition, the patients can avoid any side effects such as immobile nasal tip or turning the nose tip to red.

    Bulbous Tip Correction and Alar Reduction02. Those whose cartilage of the nasal tip is wide  
    We can create a slim and polished nose tip by incising the cartilage of the nasal tip and make the cartilage to focus on being the center of your nose.

    At the same time, we create a slim nasal tip by reducing the volume of alar or nose tip through cutting a certain part of inner side of nasal skin.
     
     
    Bulbous Tip Correction and Alar Reduction03. Those whose nasal alar are wide  
    In case one’s alar are wide, we directly reduce the size of the alar. There are several reduction methods: reducing the size by cutting the lower part of inner side of nostrils; narrowing the alar by tying the alar with alar Cinching (gathering alar cartilage by stiching method); and the mixed of incision and tying by cutting directly the outer side of the alar with wedge-shaped, then narrow the width of the alar up to desired width.
