Thank you for your question.

I would recommend scheduling a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty so that they can perform a nasal examination on you and give you the best recommendations. You may benefit from an alarplasty which is a technique that is commonly used for nostril reduction. This procedure consists of making an incision on the inside or outside of the nostrils then removing a specific amount of tissue which may help even out your nostrils. If you wish to have this procedure done under the age of 18, you are required to have parental/guardian consent. I hope this helps.
Best of luck in your endeavors!
