Do I need an alar reduction to get a more Western looking nose like Doutzen Kroes? (Photo)

Do I need an alar reduction? My goal of my future nosejob is to have a nose like Doutzen when smiling and not smiling, a nose with no hump and a nose tip that is more refined and nostrils that show more when I am not smiling. Please see photos and comparision please. Is my goal realistic and would this suit me? I am currently in my early twenties and I since I can feel the bone when touching my bridge I am suspecting that I might have thin skin on the bridge, not sure about my nose tip though.

Many thanks for the question.Yes your expectations are achievable.You need tip plasty ( narrowing the width and rotation cranially to begin  since it not well defined and dropping , along with hump removal.Once the tip is done well some alar correction will take place naturally and perhaps actively alar correction may not be needed.

  If you are going to refine your tip, the alar base should always be considered.
