Long nose correction

The bulbous tip can be corrected with sutures placed to refine it.  The tip can then be rotated up to shorten the length of the nose.  Some resection of the caudal septum can also be done to achieve this.

The bulbous tip improvement

+1
The bulbous tip can be improved  by narrowing  and refining the tip without looking too feminine on a male patient. To repair a bulbous tip, suture techniques are performed on the lower lateral cartilages. Also important to make sure the new tip the balances with the remainder of the nose.

First, it is difficult to say what can be done without seeing other views or seeing you in person. Second it canbe done without feminizing your face.
