Do I need a major Rhinoplasty? Wanted to shorten bridge and tip. Do I need a nostril reduction as well? (photos)

To lower your bridge height and reshape your tip that would be considered a 'major' rhinoplasty since it treats the whole nose. As the tip is shortened it could also be narrowed so it would not end up looking wider.
Closed rhinoplasty, some advices:
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.

Conservative rhinoplasty for a natural result.
Conservative rhinoplasty for a natural result And not the overdone look is what u need. Look for a surgeon who does noses like yours and all of his noses look natural. Do NOT rely on imaging!

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 cephalic rotation of your tip to turn
up your tip slightly and 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.

In order to evaluate your photos most accurately- all views of the nose would be helpful. With that said - looking at your profile and comparing it to your wish pic- it appears to be a realistic expectation. A complete Rhinoplasty would be necessary in order to address all of the elements of the nose. I would utilize a closed Rhinoplasty technique- without leaving a scar on your columella. In the right hands- you should expect a very pleasing outcome.It is a very precise operation and has to be performed by an Expert.
