Can the Area of the Nose Between the Eyes Be Altered by Rhinoplasty To Be Made More African American? In reference to the very upper nasal bones, which lie between the eyes and connects the nose to the eyerows? can the width be increased? I believe the part of the nose is called the 'Naso Frontal Suture' (the upper most part of the nosebridge?

Widening the radix of the nose can be accomplished with reverse osteotomies and a cartilage graft over the top of the newly created open roof deformity. In addition to width, the height will increase from the graft itself.
This area is called the radix. In order to increase projection, we’d need to place some cartilage grafted from the ear, or a facial graft harvested from the temporal area. The cartilage will be inserted through your nostrils.
The radix of the nose can be made wider with grafting or filler and the dorsum and tip can be altered as well if necessary. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
There are temporary and permanent ways to add width or volume to an area of the nose that "needs" augmentation. A temporary method is through the use of fillers. A more permanent means can be accomplished using bone or cartilage grafts. Hope this helps. Best wishes!
What you want sounds relatively simple and can be accomplished with fillers without the need for surgery.
