Which surgeries should be done on my nose in order to get as close as possible to my desired nose? (photos)

I always wanted to get a nose job done because i think the tip of my nose is too wide and flares up when i smile, its also really fat and i want my nose to look more defined so that it looks straight. How much would it cost to correct wide tip, wide nostrils, wide nasal bridge, and a underdeveloped bridge profile? Do you think all these surgeries are necessary for my nose what would you recommend?

Rhinoplasty candidate for narrowing a wide nose

While it is possible the narrow the wide nose, thick skin will be an impediment to seeing a very refined tip. To narrow the wide nasal bones, osteotomies are performed. To narrow the tip, a tip rhinoplasty is required which involves narrowing tip cartilages with suture techniques. To narrow the wide nostrils, and alar plasty is required which involves removal of a small wedge of skin from inside the nostrils

Candidate for a rhinoplasty?

A rhinoplasty requires a detailed consultation to understand your anatomy and your goals for surgery.  Not really possible to give a definitive answer at this point.
