I'm Confused As to What Type of Surgery I Need, a Rinoplasty or a Nostril Reduction?
IMHO, both a Tip Plasty as part of a closed Rhinoplasty, to refine and thin the nasal tip as well as internal weir incisions to decrease the nostril size would aesthetically improve the appearance of the nose.

Rhinoplasty and weir excision (nostril reduction)
better photos needed
rhinoplasty can shape the nose and or the tip of the nose
nostril reduction only makes the nostril size smaller or more narrow

Rhinoplasty or alar reduction
To get the best idea it would be helpful to get a full view of the nose in order to comment on the benefit of a full rhinoplasty. Alar reduction is very likely to be a component and may be your only goal but getting the whole picture is best.
Best of luck,

I think you need a complete rhinoplasty. Your tip is too wide as is the alar base. From what I can see you also need narrowing of the bridge.

Rhinoplasty with or without nostril narrowing.
Rhinoplasty with or without nostril narrowing depends on the goal. I would need to see full face photos. Nostril narrowing does just that and if that is all you need, then you don't need a rhinoplasty.
First better photos would be helpful. Also the type of surgery depends on your goals. A nostril width reduction which is what I assume you are mentioning is one aspect of rhinoplasty.
