Your nose can be improved with rhinoplasty surgery. Consultation with a board certified surgeon who is an expert in this operation is the best way to determine what can be done so you can clarify reasonable expectations.

First, a male rhinoplasty needs to be more subtle.  You do not want to feminize your nose.  Meatiness means an excess of soft tissue under the skin .  a debulking of the soft tissue will help.  DO NOT decrease your nostril size.  A cartilage tip graft may give you more definition there.

Defined Tip with Closed Rhinoplasty

    Your tip could be reduced through a closed approach in a few minutes.  I would not recommend any significant nostril narrowing. 

Meaty nose

The thickness of the tip is caused by wide cartilages .  The nasal bones are also quite wide.  Osteotomies  will narrow the nasal bones and tip suturing /cartilage removal will refine the tip.  The nostrils are acceptable in size and do not need any reduction.

Every rhinoplasty should be tailored to the individual. After discussing your concerns with your prospective surgeon, he or she will be able to make recommendations for you based on your individual needs. Many surgeons use computer imaging software, which is a great way for you to get an idea of how the final result may appear. It also serves as a great communication tool between you and your surgeon. From here, I would recommend doing your homework, and booking a consult with a board certified rhinoplasty specialist who has a great deal of experience. I hope this helps, and good luck!

Congratulations on your decision to proceed forward. Looking at the photos you provided, I think there is a high likelihood you will have a nice change with rhinoplasty surgery. You have to make sure your rhinoplasty surgeon is qualified in performing this type of surgery. Confirm they have a vast gallery of before and after rhinoplasty photos before deciding. Although you might not find one that is like your nose, their sense of aesthetics and style will come out in the other photo examples.
