Just after rhinoplasty my nose is fat, of course... But a couple things were done that will still make it wider permanently... This bridge was flattened... and, the tip was deprojected If it's still too wide after a year, might I do alar base reduction? Also, is it possible to give the bridge less of a 'flat' look without having the long recovery/swelling of a full rhinoplasty? I'd like to do whatever to make it more narrow without the long recovery. I can't handle a long recovery again.

Your nose is fine! Leave it alone!
Your nose is perfectly fine and your surgeon has done a very nice job. You are a guy and you do not want a small thin feminine nose. Your profile and your front view are nice. Your picture shows you smiling and of course when you smile your nostrils will widen. That is a normal thing. Enjoy the results and don't give it any more thought. Its a nice nose and your face is handsome. Messing with it can make things much worse potentially. Good luck
Nose to wide
You have a great result which will only keep getting better over the course of the year. Be patient and not so analytic. That's how people get what they say they don't want-the "operated look".

At this time you have an good result. If you're ultimately dissatisfied revisions can be made. However nobody has a crystal ball; enjoy your improvement rather than try to speculate about the ultimate result and possible surgical alternatives.

Your result looks very nice, it will get a bit narrower as the swelling subsides. Remember if spreader grafts were put in, it may make the middle third a bit wider than it was before.
