How did a YouTube video make this patient travel from Switzerland to Bedminster, New Jersey? He was searching on the internet for a Revision Direct Brow Lift and came across our YouTube channel. After arranging a Skype consultation with Dr. Janjua, the patient decided to travel to Bedminster and have Dr. J perform the procedure. He will be staying in New Jersey until the stitches are removed. Unfortunately, the patient is a private person, so we cannot show you any photos or videos of his experience. We will keep you posted on his progress, and you can watch the video that helped him make this life changing decision.

The issue of happiness as it relates to cosmetic surgery is multifaceted. Cosmetic surgery can sometimes play a role in adding to someone’s happiness. However, it is not possible to create or initiate happiness in an individual through cosmetic surgery when they are not happy with life in general. These issues should be dealt with before surgery.
The patients must ask themselves if they are happy in general. If they feel that they are not happy and are hoping that the cosmetic surgery will make them happy, they are going to be disappointed. In this situation the patient should consult a psychiatrist or a psychologist prior to undergoing any cosmetic procedure. read more here

Alarplasty is a delicate procedure used to narrow wide nostrils. There is a lot of confusion in terminology and treatment methods for this condition. Some ethnicities are more likely to have wider nostrils along with a nasal flare at times. It is more common in African Americans. Some patients find the wide nostrils and/or the flaring of the nostrils to be distracting. The patients might feel self conscious and it can affect their confidence.
Alarplasty involves removing a wedge of tissue from the sides of the nostrils near the junction with the cheek. The base of the wedge is at the level of the alar rims and the pointed apex is near the sides where the nose meets the cheek groove. The amount of excision depends on how wide the nostrils are. Many patients and physicians try to measure the change in mm narrowing on a frontal view. This can be difficult as the size of the wedge removed does not translate exactly into the frontal narrowing distance.
I personally find it better for communicating with the patient to use a scale of small, medium or large change. Majority of the patients require a medium change. It is important to remember that you can always go back and remove more tissue if you feel the nostrils are still wide. However, if you remove too much, you cannot add it back in.
Some surgeons use a suturing technique to pull the side walls medially. It can cause bunching of tissue and is unlikely to be permanent. Others have tried only incisions inside the nostrils out of fear of incisions on the outside. This method cannot achieve a big change. The outside incisions heal well and are well hidden next to the alar groove.
In summary, alarplasty (nostril narrowing) is a good procedure that can be performed in isolation without doing a full rhinoplasty and gives excellent results.
