Alar base reduction after rhinoplasty most useful in patients with thick skin

August 18, 2017

An alar base reduction after lateral crural repositioning and lateral crural strut graft demonstrated more utility in patients with thick skin than in patients with thin or normal skin undergoing rhinoplasty.

The aim of the retrospective case series study was to assess rates of alar base resection use among 621 patients who underwent procedures performed by a single surgeon between Jan. 1, 2012, and June 30, 2015. The analysis included 319 lateral crural repositioning with lateral crural strut graft procedures. The surgeon used an alar base reduction in 329 procedures.
