Without an in-office consultation including a thorough history and physical exam, no recommendation should be or can be made. With that said, on the pictures you provided, it appears that you would benefit from refinement of the bottom third of your nose. Your profile view is actually not bad at all. You should see a rhinoplasty expert with extensive experience in nose surgery. He or she can discuss your options, set expectations, discuss possible limitations, etc. Whether an open or closed approach is utilized is secondary. One is not necessarily better or worse than the other. Surgeon comfort, experience, and preference with a given approach play an important role. What is most important, though, is to choose a surgeon you are comfortable with, confident in, and who's results you like on before and after photos shown to you. Best wishes!
What type of Rhinoplasty?
Keep in mind that following advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you exactly what to do and how technically to do it based on two dimensional photos 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 with extensive rhinoplasty experience certified by the American Board of 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 person.
