Wide Nostril / Big Nostril Nose Job

Many patients from NYC with a wide nostril, bulbous nasal tip often complain about their nose looking too big at the end. Wide nostrils width can sometimes create or contribute to the appearance of an oversized nose that doesn’t fit the face especially for patients with an ethnic descent. Dr. Philip Miller specializes in wide nostril nose surgery for his patients in NYC.

The ideal nose creates a triangle shape with symmetrical nostrils that are of a proportionate size. When nostrils are too wide or large, it draws attention away from the eyes and face and disproportionate emphasis is placed on the nostrils. Whether owing to ethnic heritage or genetic makeup, a nose that has big or large nostrils is a frequent complaint of many potential rhinoplasty patients.

Dr. Miller performs nose jobs to address overly wide or large nostrils in his NYC office for a variety of ethnic patients. To reduce nostril size, he removes portions of the surrounding tissue through incisions either below or inside the nose. This results in minimal to no obvious scarring.
