Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
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.

Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, you may benefit from a tip refining rhinoplasty. Your surgeon can
accomplish this by trimming, suturing, and reshaping the cartilage in your
lower nose. Cartilage grafts may also be used to help improve tip refinement.
You may also benefit from an alarplasty to decrease the width of your alar base. The most important aspect is
to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek consultation
with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in
Best wishes and good luck.

Tip rhinoplasty and alar base resection can address the issues that you are concerned with. A careful consultation that would involve a discussion determining exactly what bothers you and a careful examination of your nose and it's relation to other facial structures will make it clear to you the changes that will have the best impact on your looks and your satisfaction.
First, everyone's nose widens when one smiles. If you are unhappy with your nasal appearance, then perhaps you should be seen for a consultation. Good luck.
I would suggest visiting with a facial plastic surgeon or a plastic surgeon to discuss your goals. From your photo, your nose can be narrowed, but realize that it will always widen with smiling even after a rhinoplasty. Good luck!
Your nose can be made narrower -- but no matter how narrow it is made, when you smile it will get wider. The muscles of your face will always pull the alar bases out.
It's possible to refine the nose by making it more narrow and Giving the tip more definition. You should find a plastic surgeon who performs many rhinoplastys. The surgeon should be able to evaluate you and analyze your nose from all angles in relationship to the rest of your face. Computer simulation can also give you a preview of what you would look like with a new nose after surgery.
In order to evaluate most accurately- all views of the face are needed. And of course in person exam is essential. Generally speaking, yes- Rhinoplasty can narrow your bones and sculpt the tip. Make sure you seek a Board Certified PS with extensive experience in Rhinoplasty
