It appears that the side profile of your nose has a slight downward slope, and that your tip is drooping a bit (what doesn't as we get older?). It appears that your nasal aesthetic goal is to have a relatively straight profile (I would suggest just a hint of a dip just above the tip, the so-called supra tip break), rotation of your tip upwards, and a less bulbous tip.
I believe that you are an excellent rhinoplasty candidate and that your nasal aesthetic goals can be met. The most important aspect of your rhinoplasty will be making sure that you take the time and effort to choose your rhinoplasty surgeon most carefully based on their artistic vision, skill, experience, and touch. Good luck and be well.

Keep in mind, that following the advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you what to do based on limited 2 dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of the proposed operative procedure with you and your parents may not be in your best interest. I would suggest you find a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) or facial plastic surgeon (otolaryngologist) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

Yes DBZDOLL you are a perfect canidate!
Unfortunately as we age the cartilage that comprises our nose as well as our ears continues to grow and stretch as it weakens. It happens to all of us! This can make our nose appear wider and causes the tip to droop. When we look at ourselves in the mirror we see an older, less-refined version of our self. With some rotation of your tip upwards and additional refinement to your tip and dorsum, you will achieve the look you desire. Our in-office morphing software allows us to provide you a concrete image of your aesthetic goals to further ensure your vision for your nose is attained!
