What do you mean by "fixed?"

The most important thing in cases like this is to have a realistic expectation. Large noses with thick skin can almost always have a nice improvement after rhinoplasty with a qualified specialist. It will probably never be thin, but should have better definition, become smaller, and have a natural appearance. So in essence it will be fixed.

Rhinoplasty with thick skin in the tip

 A rhinoplasty procedure can be accomplished to narrow and refine the nasal tip, however it's important to have realistic expectations on what can and cannot be accomplished with procedure. Thick skin is a significant impediment to seeing a very refined result in the tip of the nose. The aftercare is very important which would include steroid shots and taping the nose at night due to the thick skin and fluid retention that occurs for the first several months after the procedure.

If your tissues are quite thick, it can be difficult to get refinement as it would in a thin skinned nose.

Take skin nose is always a challenging but still you can have significant improvement in the definition of the nose after a rhinoplasty.  The key is to continue monitoring for any scar Formation in the first year after surgery.

Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.

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.
