Rhinoplasty , some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
Through rhinoplasty we make small changes, but that is quite noticeable.
After having analyzed all the info provided to us, i recommend you perform a Full Rhinoplasty, includding narrowing of the nasal base, with nasal bones treatment, and alar and triangular nasal cartilages shaping.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.

Thank you for your question. Many surgeons prefer rhinoplasties because they offer a more detailed and predictable approach to nasal contouring. Always consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon. You can also receive a second opinion during a consultation to compare potential procedure approaches.
Closed vs open
It depends on the experience and preference of your surgeon. Most modern Asian rhinoplasties tend to be performed open and more work can be done to the tip this way

The issue of choosing between a closed technique and open technique is a matter your surgeon's preference, however, in most cases, Asian Rhinoplasty can be done with closed technique, unless its a revision procedure, or it will involve complicated tip work.
The best way to visualize how above changes will look is to perform computer imaging with your plastic surgeon.
You will be able to achieve the most refinement and change with an open procedure, but a subtle change is certainly possible using a closed technique.
