I am 25 years old, have nice eyes and great skin but my nose is very, very wide. It looks flattened. If I get this repaired surgically with rhinoplasty, would I have extensive scarring along the sides of my nose?
Hi. Not necessarily. The narrowing of the nose during rhinoplasty is done on the cartilage and bone under the skin and the skin is then draped over the newly sculpted nose. The only time potentially visible scars occur with nasal narrowing is if the nostrils need to be narrowed. Even then the nostril narrowing or alar reduction scars should not be extensive.
