Would simply getting the tip of my nose fixed change my profile enough?
My recommendation is for a complete rhinoplasty obtain symmetry and to feminize the nose as well as refine the tip. This would eliminate your nose as a distracting feature and allow it to blend harmoniously with your otherwise pretty, feminine face.

Thank you for your question.
As an artist I like using the reshaping technique when performing Rhinoplasties . Using advanced suturing techniques I can change the nasal cartilages giving a thinner , more refined natural looking nose.From examining your pictures I would recommend a full rhinoplasty.
I like to find out from the patient what they don't like about their nose and what their goals are. I then examine the nose and then make an operative plan.
I incorporate the FINNESSE Technique which I invented . Bleeding ,bruising , and postoperative pain is minimal when compared to traditional technique.it is not uncommon that some patients have no bruising after surgery. I don't routinely pack the nose.
Rhinoplasty, some advices:
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.

Rachael, thank you for the pictures! Often times when we look in the mirror, there is one particular thing that we do not like. When that is addressed, we notice that there are other aspects relating to that structure which were also affected. What I am trying to say is that we must differentiate the forest from the trees. Addressing only the tip, in your case, would improve how your nose looks when you smile (as far as it not coming down and affecting your profile). However, it would look out of place with the rest of the nose as you have a slightly widened dorsum and projected nose. To be honest with you, you would be best served with a conservative rhinoplasty to help accomodate the nose to the rest of your pretty facial features. An elegant and natural looking nose is certainly possible. Improving the definition of the upper and mild third of your nose while giving you definition to your tip and creating a great looking profile would be the goal. When going on your consultations, make sure you discuss what exactly would be done and how that would affect your overall outcome. Rhinoplasty is both exciting and nerve wracking for patients! We completely understand that. Our job is to make you feel comfortable. Best of luck! You will do great. I hope some of this helps.
Simply getting your tip of your nose operated on will cause your nose to be out of balance
