Nose Reduction / refinements
In nose refinement, one of the things that can be achieved would be reducing the 'wings' or alar of the nose, making the nose look narrower and smaller. This is commonly done together with nasal augmentation, which raises the bridge and tip of the nose at the same sitting.
