Open nose surgery
With this technique you can change the shape of your tip from round to something more sculptured. You can narrow the width and the base of your tip, change the shape and size of your nostrils. The dorsum needs only minor work. I am assuming you do not have septal problem of course.
If you do not have breathing problems or septal deviation the procedure can be done as a day case.
Just for reference, in Central London an open rhinoplasty will cost you between 4500 and 5000 GBP. This cost includes clinic, hospital stay, anaesthetist and follow up appointments and dressings.
You will wake up with a nasal splint and sutures which will need to stay for 7 to 10 days. Ideally you should not travel before that day.

I would refine the tip, reduce the alar base, and narrow the bridge. This will keep your nose in balance.
Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds
of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the
plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a
sense of who can deliver the results.

Alarplasty is not the answer.
A high-end surgeon that can help these issues turn out aesthetically attractive will run you $7,000- 8,000.
