Rhinoplasty to narrow a wide nose
A rhinoplasty procedure can accomplish narrowing a wide nose. To narrow the bridge line requires osteotomies placed in the nasal bones. The narrow the tip require suture techniques and conservative cartilage removal. To narrow wide nostrils requires an alar-plasty. Thick skin in the tip of the nose will prevent significant improvement in that area. For many examples and more information, please see the link and the video below
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.
The most important aspect is
to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. With good surgical technique, you
could have an outstanding result. I recommend that you seek consultation with a
qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.

What you are really looking for is a dork-columellar augmentation to your nose. Your nose lacks dorsal height and top projection when compared to you ideal nose. Whether this is done by rib cartilage grafting, an implant or a combination of both needs an informed discussion.
