I’m an African American male in my early 30s and am contemplating ethnic rhinoplasty. Is it possible to fix flared nostrils while also narrowing my nose?
Yes. Flaring or wide alae is one of the characteristics of African American nose. African American nose also tends to have flat dorsum, take off point of the nose is lower than Caucasian nose, and thinker skin with weaker cartilages. It is important that the surgeon understands these nuances and makes appropriate corrections during rhinoplasty for the best result.
