My nose is so ugly and would love to have my large nostrils small,what would you recommend i have done as i can't stand looking at it.
Reducing the size of the nostrils
An alar base reduction can yield a fantastic result when you are looking to reduce the size of the nostrils. Depending on your goals, it may be completed under local anesthesia in the office. If you would like to change the appearance of your tip or bridge, it would be better to be performed under general anesthesia.
During an alar base reduction, part of the nostril is removed. The incisions are hidden in the groove where your nose and your cheek meet. I would recommend a consult with a board certified rhinoplasty specialist. They will be able to assess your nose in person and provide you with advice. When looking for a surgeon, be mindful of the following:
2) Board certification
3) Fellowship training
4) Great patient testimonials
5) A good amount of before and after photos showcasing their work.
I hope this helps, and good luck!
Alar plasty for wide nostrils
A simple alar-plasty performed under local anesthesia can narrow wide nostrils. This is performed under local anesthesia as an outpatient procedure.

Treatment of Wide Nostrils
Your tip can be refined and the base of your nose reduced. Although it is difficult to see your entire nose in the one picture you've sent this is frequently done in ethnic rhinoplasty.
