Watch a video from Dr. Lamperti's operating room in which he narrows a patient's wide nostrils using a alar wedge excision technique.

My latest SurgeonCam video shows my method of performing this surgery during rhinoplasty surgery. Click the screen shot below to watch the the procedure in the Rhinoplasty Video section of the site.
