What type of nose do I currently have?
Each individual patient has a very unique nose, therefore a custom surgical plan is created for each individual at the time the consultation and examination. The nose is a three-dimensional structure, so it's important to look at all the different angles. A closed rhinoplasty approach can accomplish straightening the crooked nose, decreasing the projection of the nose de-rotate the nasal tip, and reduce the nasal bulbous tip cartilages with all of the incisions placed on the inside of the nose. Make consultations with three busy plastic surgeons in your area. For many examples and more information, please see the link and the video below
How Should I Change My Nose?
Your asymmetrical tip can be narrowed and refined. You have suggested that your nose is difficult to evaluate so I recommend that you take the time to submit pictures as described on my website for nasal evaluation.
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. You may also benefit from a conservative dorsal hump reduction. Make sure you specifically look at before and after
pictures of real patients who have had this surgery performed by your surgeon
and not just a computer animation system. 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 person.
Best wishes and good luck.

Thanks for the question. From the limited pictures, it appears subtle changes may be best. In your case, it seems narrowing the bridge and tip may be beneficial. I would recommend you visit with a rhinoplasty surgeon in person.
Thank you for your question and photos. Without full photos or in-person examination, it's difficult to determine what needs to be done exactly. From the photos you posted, you could benefit from hump reduction to give a more feminine and softer profile. Also refining your tip will look more balanced. I can't comment on the length of the nose (projection) from these photos but it can be modified if needed. Good luck
