Rhinoplasty can create a more ideal angle between the nose and the upper lip, while also increasing the definition of your nose, particularly the bridge. I suggest that you move forward to consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

There Are Good Rhinoplasty Options Available
You should be able to get a nice result from a rhinoplasty. Narrowing both the base of your nose as well as the tip, giving some more definition to the tip, and strengthening the bridge of the nose would all produce a drastic yet natural result. Part of the difficulty of your specific procedure is that you appear to have thick skin and likely somewhat soft cartilage. It is likely that you would need some additional cartilage to help give you the results you desire. Make an appointment to see an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon in your area who has had experience with noses that looks similar to yours. Don't be discouraged, you will likely be very happy with the result. Good luck.
