Permanently removing blackheads from nose? (photo)

My nose has blackheads and hairs, as well as bumps. What options are there for the permanent removing of blackheads/hairs from a nose? Can a rhinoplasty remove blackheads, and even out bumps on the nose?

Nasal Pores

In the photo your skin demonstrates nasal pores.  Presently, there is no way to eliminate these.  It appears that you have done a good job of cleaning this area.
For some people mild chemical peels will cause some narrowing of the pore opening.
Deeper chemical peels will not improve their appearance.   Rhinoplasty surgery will not improve their appearance.

Rhinoplasty surgery would not change the consistency of your nasal skin.

Your up-close nasal photo reveals thick oily skin with large pores. You may wish to consult with a reputable dermatologist about your concerns since rhinoplasty surgery would not improve the texture or appearance of your nasal skin.

Hope this helps.
