Hard to really tell without photos or exam.  Look at your nose and ask what (reasonably) to you want to change.  Most of the time the alae and tip can be reduced.  Remember that you are not make out of clay and that some rhinoplasty cases can be a challenge for the most experienced surgeon.  Seek out a few experienced rhinoplasty surgeons.  Look at his/ her photos.  Interview them and see if your goals can be done.

Reducing the size of the Asian nose

In general, noses can look "big" when the the nostrils are wide, as you refer to, and also if the cartilages at the tip of the nose are flimsy, leading to a widened, ill-defined tip. Frequently, Asian rhinoplasty will consist of narrowing the nostrils and rebuilding the flimsy tip cartilage to give a narrower appearing tip and nostril. The bridge is treated if it is low.

 I have performed Rhinoplasty for over 20 years and have learned that one patients "big" is anothers "normal", so photos would be required for any meaningful evaluation and comments on how to best improve the appearance, of your nose, with Rhinoplasty.
