Nostril stenosis (narrowing of the nasal inlet) is an uncommon deformity which results in aesthetic and breathing discomfort in patients. The literature review shows that trauma, infection, iatrogenic insults and congenital lesions are major causes of stenosis. Nowadays, rhinoplasty is one of most popular aesthetic surgeries which may have complications such as bleeding, swelling, bruising, asymmetry, obstruction of nasal airways. We present a 30-year-old female patient, who complained about breathing and aesthetic difficulties due to external nasal valve obstruction and nasal deformity. Past medical history showed that the patient had undergone three unsuccessful rhinoplasty surgeries with aesthetic goals.
