This is something that can be corrected by an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon. When interviewing plastic surgeons, be sure to ask to see photos of this specific problem, don't let them just show you any pictures. Good luck.

It sounds like you want a reduction of your nasal ala. An experienced plastic surgeon can correct this for you. Make sure he is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and specializes in noses.

Narrowing the Nostrils and tip

This is a very common request.  Please consult with a board certified specialist in the face who can help and guide you towards achieving the results you seek. 3-dimensional computer imaging can help you visualize what you may look like afterwards.
