When the nose is made smaller, what happens to the extra skin?
enough, the skin will "shrink-wrap" to fit the new, smaller size
of the nose. The nasal skin has some elasticity, so even if a nose
is made incredibly smaller during the operation, no skin needs to be
excised. That's convenient, because it wouldn't be acceptable to
place an obvious scar on the outside of the nose for the removal of some
of the nasal skin.
