Pre-op: Nose tip alteration without surgery?

I wanted a rhino-tip surgery but I only want to alter the alar bases by a centimeter on each nostril, so it's pointless going through the hassle of surgery for such a small change. I was wondering if there is a non-surgical method of alteration? The nose tip also droops by a centimeter, and my nose bridge is quite narrow, which is why the nostrils stand out more.

   What you want will require surgery.  There is no getting around that.  It is not a big surgery to bring in the nostrils, but it is a surgery.

Photos are needed for an online evaluation of your nose.  An exam by a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon is needed for a final determination of the procedure that would achieve the results you are looking for.  See a Plastic Surgeon that has a lot of experience in cosmetic Rhinoplasty surgery.
