Can my nose be fixed? (Photo)

Yes - but it's not just the tip.
The key here is that your nose may be full at the bottom, but part of that is due to narrowing in the middle part of your nose. There is a bit of an hourglass shape. Make certain that your surgeon will be addressing that as well as it will make your nose look more attractive, without making it look too feminine, and will maximize the strength of your nose. Plus, you'll breathe better if that's also addressed.
Can my nose be fixed?
Yes, it can. A simple solution would be to refine the lower (tip) part of your nose to make it more proportional to the rest of it. An in person consultation to evaluate the rest of your facial features is important to ensure overall balance. I hope this helps.
Correcting nasal dysproportion.
The goal of rhinoplasty is to create proportional dimensions of the nose so all parts look like they "fit" with the others. Your nasal tip has it's shape from the strong cartilage you have. If you are pleased with the upper part of your nose, your tip can be refined with modification of the cartilage which makes up the lower part of your nose. This can be done to maintain a masculine profile but a refined tip. You should see a board certified plastic surgeon for a consultation and a detailed discussion about your wishes.

Yes, it can be improved. The tip region can be softened and narrowed. Best of luck with your decision tome forward.
Options for Nose Improvements
The photograph of your nose demonstrates imbalances which you described quite accurately.
The thin top may be in part to short nasal bones; but an in-person examination is necessary to verify this. In addition, your strong tip cartilages create a bulbous tip. Your cartilages appear strong providing fora good and supporting framework.
Rhinoplasty surgery may be considered for narrowing of a bulbous nasal tip.
Your frontal photo appears to reveal relatively thin skin which may be associated with visible irregularities after rhinoplasty surgery, so your choice of specialists is important for achieving a desired result. Hope this helps you. Dr Joseph
Rhinoplasty to improve nasal bridge and bulbous tip
You would be an excellent candidate for a rhinoplasty to address your concerns about the bridge and tip of your nose. Rhinoplasty would improve the contour and width of your nasal bridge and improve the overall shape and size of your nasal tip. I would recommend seeking out a consultation with an experienced, board-certified facial plastic surgeon or plastic surgeon. Good 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. 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.

By your description and picture alone, you may be good candidate for rhinoplasty. Male rhinoplasties should be approached differently from female rhinoplasty. Often, the goals are to refine the nose in ways that maintains a masculine look. Make sure to seek a consultation with a board-certified specialist.
