kraymer0, This is what I find difficult with this forum. First of all no one can tell you anything of any significance based on your one selfie. As far as I can see most young men would love to look like the man in that photo. Should you really be serious seek the advice of as experienced facial plastic specialist and be conservative. Good luck!
Your nose is overally broad in the frontal view, so you'd be candidate for rhinoplasty in orther to thin all its parts: bony pyramid, soft pyramid, tip, etc.
It is true that an attractive nose should fit one's face. Gender, size, shape and age all affect the face. Bigger builds and faces can support bigger noses. But in general there are procedures (surgery) that can make wide tips more refined, wide bones less wide and other nasal features more harmonious. Osteotomies can help wide bones and various tip plasty procedures actually 'sculpt' the cartilages of the tip. Grafts also help in refinement. An experienced nasal surgeon will suggest and discuss these in more detail.
Rhinoplasty to narrow a wide nose
A rhinoplasty procedure can accomplish narrowing a wide nose. Osteotomies are required to narrow wide nasal bones, which narrows the entire bridge line. A conservative amount of cartilage removal from the tip can help narrow the tip as well. Very important not to overdo narrowing the nose. For many examples, please see the link and video below
Your interest in changing the shape of the nose requires a medical history, pertinent examination and what you are looking to do.
An experienced board certified rhinoplastic surgeon, at consultation, would give you an idea of what can be done and what not can be done. The risks and fees should also be discussed. Computer imaging is helpful in knowing what your sense of aesthetics is.
Best approach to reduce the width and improve the shape of my nose - particularly at the tip?
No one ever "needs" a rhinoplasty. It is an elective procedure
and only you can determine if your nasal features concern you enough to do
something about improving the cosmetic appearance of your nose and whether it
Keep in mind that following advice from a surgeon on this or any other website
who proposes to tell you exactly what to do based on a two dimensional photo without
examining you, physically feeling your tissue,
assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history and discussing
the pros and cons of the operative procedure would not be in your best
interest. Natural appearing results need to be individualized and what is
appropriate for one patient is not necessarily the best for someone else. I would suggest that you find a surgeon certified by the
American Board of American Plastic Surgery and one who is ideally a member of
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and
are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in
If you are still ambivalent about undergoing the
procedure after having plastic surgery consultations, I would suggest that you
not have the procedure until you are sure that you want to do it.

Rhinoplasty to address the size and shape of your nose should help you address your concerns. You have to understand that there is no such thing as the “perfect” nose. As rhinoplasty surgeons, we are able to improve the structure and function of the nose to address specific issues you have with how your nose looks and and how well you can breathe. Perfect symmetry does not exist in nature. Attempts to improve the symmetry of your nose should be aimed at achieving an improvement in your asymmetry to the point where it is no longer very noticeable. If you look carefully enough, you will always be able to find imperfections. The goal is a normal looking nose that is in harmony with the rest of your anatomy.
Hello. Sounds like you are an ideal candidate for rhinoplasty. A narrower and more refined, yet masculine nose is easily attainable in the right hands.
Your concerns could be addressed with a rhinoplasty. I would advise doing 3D photographic imaging with your surgeon to make sure your aesthetic goals are met.
