When the nasal tip is quite bulbous, the best treatment is to narrow, refine, and reduce the bulbousness of the nose to better fit the facial features. It is also important to make sure that the nasal tip balances with the remainder of the nose. In rare cases a tip plasty can be performed without adjusting the remainder of the nose. Tip cartilage suturing techniques and removal of tip cartilage are two ways to narrow and refine the tip. All of this is done through a closed rhinoplasty technique rather than open rhinoplasty. This is performed under general anesthesia and takes approximately an hour.

Yes. You are a candidate for refinement of your nose. It is impossible to tell for sure with a single frontal view photo but it does appear that your chin is also small. This might be the reason why you feel your nose is "too large" for the rest of your face. A chin implant might also help bring your nose and lower face into better balance. I hope this information is helpful.
