This is absolutely not possible . You look to have thicker skin so some refinement is possible but likely less than you would like and you must be comfortable with that before proceeding
Probably the most important issue is the interplay between skin thickness and cartilage strength. Thick skin and weak cartilage will limit the amount of narrowing that can be achieved. That being said, weak cartilage can be grafted and thick skin can be thinned surgically and post operative my with steroid and or fluorouracil injections. You may not able to get the exact nose you desire, but you should be able to get something close.
Your photo shows you may have thicker skin than the model you posted with your desired result. Consider consulting with several rhinoplasty specialists so you could see what to expect after rhinoplasty. Thank you.Dr Joseph
Hi, I have seen the fotos you posted. A rhinoplasty can give you a thinner more refined nose however nowhere near as thin as the picture you sent. Your skin is thicker than the models. You look to be in your mid to late teens. As you mature your face will also and your bonestructure of your face and jaw will change and improve. So a rhinoplasty can help but you have to have realistic expectations. Seek out a consultation with a surgeon to see what can be done.
Rhinoplasty can give you a smaller and slimmer nose. You do have a thick skin envelope and that may limit how refined the final result would be. Through an open rhinoplasty, one can thin the skin and would help.
Thank you for your question and photographs.I would recommend that you schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who specializes in rhinoplasty so they can perform a nasal examination and give you the best options. From what I can tell in your photos, you would benefit from an open rhinoplasty to thin out the bridge of the nose and a tip rhinoplasty to reduce the size of the tip of your nose which includes trimming the lower lateral cartilages and placing precision sutures to refine the tip and make it look more pleasing and proportional to the rest of your face. Best of luck in your endeavors.

Thank you for your question. If you don't like the outside appearance of your nose the first place to start is to consult with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon who can explore the possibilities with you. Best of luck!
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. Cartilage grafts may also be used to help improve tip refinement.
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.
