You show a variety of attractive women with unique and different noses. As compared to your nose, what they all have in common is a higher, leaner nasal bridge and diminished nostril width. The tip of their nose is more projected and the shape of the tip is narrower and more refined. To create these changes for you, cartilage grafts will be needed to both build up the nasal bridge and project the nasal tip. Osteotomies should be done to narrow the width of the nasal bones and an alar excision (alar-plasty) performed to diminish the width and curvature of the nostrils. Sutures should be used to bend, shape and refine your tip cartilages. Ultimately, the elasticity and thickness of your skin will have a significant effect on the final outcome. I recommend that you find an experienced surgeon in your area that is confident in the treatment of your type of nose. Meet with more than one surgeon and don't proceed until you are comfortable with your selection. Best wishes.
