Can different size nostrils be corrected?


The nostrils are very important part of the nose and can be crooked or asymmetric when the right and left sides are compared.  Almost everyone has some degree of nostril asymmetry and correction during your rhinoplasty or septoplasty procedure can be performed if there is significant asymmetry or obstruction of the external nasal valve.  The patients who have a nose surgery or considering nasal surgery with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian will first undergo a clinical evaluation and examination to determine the breathing passage that begins in the nostrils and continues into the internal nasal valves. 


During the consultation, during Karamanoukian will examine and determine whether there is a need for nostril correction or nostril surgery during your rhinoplasty.  Revision rhinoplasty patients who have undergone previous nose surgery can also benefit from an examination of the nostrils to determine if there is a specific indication for nostril surgery.  Alar based surgery, alar sill surgery, and nasal tip surgery can all affect the shape and size of the nostrils.  If you are concerned about your nostrils and the effects of rhinoplasty on the nostrils, please call the office of Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian at 310 998 5533 and speak to one of our Los Angeles rhinoplasty patient care coordinators to schedule an appointment with Dr. Karamanoukian.
