In terms of the nose, you have an ethnic appearing nose, with a wide base and a relatively broad, undefined tip. Significant changes are impossible without surgery. If you wanted a more "Westernized" nose, it would require narrowing your nostrils (alar base reduction in medical terms) and significant cartilage grafting to project your nose from your face and stretch the thick skin to make it more refined.
Filler can be injected in the nose with a very slight risk of causing problems like death of some of the skin over the nose (less than 1 in 100 risk) but you should be aware of this. Filler can give your nasal tip more projection and refinement, but would need to be repeated every 1-2 years. This would be a more subtle change than surgery. Best of luck.
