Bulbous nasal tip
Thank you for your question. First of all, it is important when looking for a plastic surgeon for a Rhinoplasty to make sure the surgeon is board certified and specialized in Rhinoplasty to obtain the best results possible. To fully evaluate a bulbous nasal tip, a frontal view is best. However, from what I can tell, it appears your tip is enlarged and bulbous. You would benefit from a tip rhinoplasty which includes trimming the lower lateral cartilages and placing precision sutures to refine the tip and make it look more pleasing.
I would encourage you to submit frontal photos.
Best of luck in your endeavors!

Rhinoplasty, some advices:
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us.
In this regard, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.
