Rhinoplasty Is An Option
Thank you for your questions and photos. You are a good candidate for a cosmetic rhinoplasty. While you may not get exactly the nose you showed, you will get a dramatic improvement! It is healthy to have a questioning attitude when seeking a surgeon. In addition to reading reviews, be sure to consult with several and review their before and after photos. You should be able to see a significant number of before and afters with results you like. Check their credentials and make sure you are comfortable in establishing a rapport with your doctor. Best wishes.
Yes you can have a smaller nose.
Of course you can have a smaller nose. there are great rhinoplasty surgeons in Atlanta. You should meet with 3 or 4 and see who you are comfortable with after meeting with them. Don't be discouraged bya review. No doctor can go through many years of practice without a review that is not the best.
I am sure there are very qualified doctors in your area despite what you may read on Yelp or elsewhere. Find a surgeon that has performed hundreds of rhinoplasties. That speaks much louder than a couple of bad reviews.

High expectations for my nasal surgery
It is always a challenge to obtain the results after a rhinoplasty that we think is ideal. Occasionally one has to set the bar a little lower and proceed with the surgery, not fully being aware what the possibilities may be. If this is something you can't do, my recommendation would be to not do the surgery.
Without examining you fully I can see where there could be many areas for improvement, particularly in the length reduction, height reduction and tip elevation. Have your local Plastic Surgeon see you and offer a full evaluation.
Good luck to you.

Your nose can be improved
Your nose can be improved using modern techniques. It is important for you to understand what can be realistically achieved for you skin type and nose. Go and visit some surgeons and see who is best for you.
Reducing the Size of Your Nose
Consult with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon and carefully look at their results. Meet with their patients. This is much more important than a bad review by an individual you don't know with questionable credibility.
Realistic attitude when proceeding with rhinoplasty.
When planning for rhinoplasty, we all seek to obtain an ideal result. Realistically, howevver, it is not uncommon for one or two minor, less than ideal, features to be present. This is borne out by the fact that the revision rate following primary rhinoplsty ranges from 5 - 15 % based on several peer-reviewed medical research papers published over the years. So, if you cannot accept this risk then it may be best not to proceed with surgery.
