From Dr. Lampert:
Open Septorhinoplasty and Bilateral Alar Base Reduction
Septoplasty and osteotomies (or nasal fractures) were used to straighten the nose and the septum. The nose was shortened and the bulbous tip reduced and refined. The acute nasolabial angle was gently lifted and the dorsal hump (or bump) was reduced but not overly scooped. The alar base reduction was performed to narrow the nostril width. When a nose is significantly shortened like this, it can take time (sometimes over a year) for the swelling and edema to subside.
