African American Rhinoplasty
You will probably need a dorsal nasal implant of some sort with tip refinement using cartilage grafts in the tip and possibly a tip defatting procedure. I recently wrote consumer book on Ethnic rhinoplasty, link below. You should also send your pics for computer imaging so you can see what is achievable with another rhinoplasty.
Diced cartilage graft and columellar strut graft
Rhinoplasty requires in depth evaluation and discussion so you and your plastic surgeon will have to discuss what you would like to accomplish and how to go about doing so. You will most likely benefit from a diced cartilage graft to the bridge of the nose (turkish delight) and some type of nasal tip graft. The combination of the two will allow your nose to be taller and more projected thereby adding height and presenting a narrower appearance.
All the best,

For African American Rhinoplasty, adding to the tip and bridge will make the nose actually look more slender
