Hello, my name is Don, I am 23 years old and I live in Holland. For my nose I'd really like to have a more narrow and defined nose. One doctor in Manila, Philipines, advided me this: "to augment the bridge with an implant, infracture the nasal bones and do alarplasty or trimming of the sides". It sounds really good to me. Tho I'd really like to have a second opinion. What do you think?

Yes, Don, you will need nasal bone fractures to narrow the boney pyramid. From the side view, you have a cartilaginous bump that needs to be taken down before an implant is inserted. How narrow do you want your nose. maybe an implant is unnecesarry.
You would benefit from dorsal augmentation and maneuvers to revive your tip such as grafting. I am not convinced you need osteotomies or alar reduction.
