You can have the nostrils reduced in size.  This is a relatively small procedure that can be done under local anesthesia.

Rhinoplastic candidate for wide nostrils

An alar plasty procedure can reduce wide nostrils. This is a component of a rhinoplasty procedure that can be done as a stand-alone procedure, or as part of a Full rhinoplasty. An alar plasty involves a small excision of skin at the base of the nostrils, and can be performed under local anesthesia.

Alar base reduction is probably what you are thinking of to improve the appearance of your nostrils. Best of luck.
