Rhinoplasty candidate, 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.
Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
An important step in choosing the right nose for you is choosing the right surgeon. Looking at his/her before and after photos will give you a good sense of his/her aesthetic. Once you have found an experienced Asian rhinoplasty specialist, be clear about your aesthetic goals. He/she will be able to perform computer morphing of your pictures to give you a sense of what is technically achievable and what is appropriate for your face, and recommend any adjunctive procedures to attain the best result for you.

Based from your photos, you have low profile bridge and tip, thick skin, short nose appearance, and relatively broad bridge. Your nose can be augmented using either silicone or cartilage, which can be harvested either from your rib, ear, or septum.
To gain significant augmentation of the bridge, rib cartilage is your best option if you want to use cartilage. If you are fine with silicone, you can also have the option of using silicone for your bridge and cartilage either septal or ear cartilage for the tip.
The harvesting ear cartilage usually doesn't leave a noticeable scar since it can be well-hidden, while harvesting rib cartilage may leave a mark, especially on Asian skin.
As for long term result, the possibility of extrusion is actually very low. Once the result of Rhinoplasty settles, the chance of disfiguring it by from trauma is just the same as when you haven't had your nose done.
