An exam would be better to answer this question, but, in general, alar base reduction and dorsal augmentation with cartilage grafting is a reasonable option.
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.

Alar base modification (narrowing of the nostrils) can be performed on your nose while maintaining a natural, Asian appearance. Not all surgeons have the same level of experience or skill in performing this, so you should seek out rhinoplasty surgeons specializing in Asian rhinoplasty.
You appear to have a nicely shaped tip, but without a true profile picture it is difficult to assess the need for increased dorsal (bridge) or tip augmentation. During your consultation, it may be a good idea to ask your surgeon for computer imaging to better visualize what will be an attractive change for you.
