Asymmetric tip and thick nostrils

Everyone's nose is a bit different and there is always asymmetry.  AS for the thcikness of the nostrils, it is very hard to alter that without sometimes causing worse problems.

Uneven Nostrils & Asymmetrical Tip

The thickness of your nasal skin and nostrils cannot be changed. The asymmetry of your tip on the frontal view can be improved.

Thick and uneven nostrils.

Unless you have a breathing problem it would be better to leave them alone since there is so slight an asymmetry present.
