How do you improve a flat, wide nasal nose?

Question:
How do you improve a flat, wide nasal appearance as often seen in African American noses?

Answer:
The technique for reducing a wide nasal base is called an alar base reduction. This is achieved by removing a wedge of tissue where the nostrils meet the face. The scar is well-hidden in the crease. The flat appearance can be addressed by an implant and/or moving the bones of the nose towards the center of the face.
