Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Reshaping of the Wide and Thick Nose
There is little question about the benefits of alar reduction (nostril narrowing) in your nose, although 12mm per side is beyond what could or should be done as that would be disproportionate to the rest of your nose. It would be helpful to see other views of your nose to determine how best to change the shape of the rest of your nose, including the tip, and how that would look with the amount of nostril narrowing needed.
