The tip can really only be refined with a rhinoplasty. This can be done closed without any visible scar.

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.

Nonsurgical tip refinement

Using clips will not reduce the size of your nose, and may in fact cause harm if the clips exert too much pressure.  Nonsurgical rhinoplasty with fillers can create a temporary refinement of the tip, and surgical rhinoplasty will provide a permanent result safely.
