Changing the middle part of the nose
Hello and thanks for your question.
Given that the nose and face are three dimensional structures, a complete array of photographs in frontal, 45 degrees and 90 degrees profile angle as well as base view are needed to assess the existing anatomy.
Nasal tip-plasty is a procedure that is used to narrow the tip of the nose. This is done with cartilage reshaping techniques. Often, a combination of grafts and suture may need to be used to create favorable shape and outcome.
Reshaping of the bones can be done with a combination of modifying the bone and the bridge with a variety of bone reshaping tools. Piezoelectric or ultrasonic devices or other filing or reshaping instruments can be used.
I would highly recommend visiting a few plastic surgeons who specialize in this exacting and artistic procedure. In our office we provide patients with a personalized, individualized and complementary consultation to address these similar issues.

A full set of photographs are required due to the fact that the nose is a 3-dimensional structure. To narrow the nose and make the nose more slim requires osteotomies placed in the nasal bones which accomplishes narrowing the nasal bones and the upper lateral cartilages. Narrowing the nasal tip requires a tip rhinoplasty. To narrow wide nostrils requires an alar-plasty. For more information and many before and after examples, please see the link and the video below
