What Procedures Would You Choose to Do to Make my Nose Look Like This? (photo)

And could it be done through a closed rhinoplasty? I want to have a more defined and delicate, less round nose but not too thin because I don't think it fits my face. Also, my left nostril is larger than my left as you can see in the pics, so I was wondering if its possible to make a reduction like I did on Photoshop so the lenght of the nostril won't go pass the inner corner of the eyes.

While it is certainly possible to narrow the nose, it is difficult to give an opinion with only a 1 dimensional picture.  Remember that the nose is a 3 dimensional structure and that is why we always ask for 5 separate photo views so that we can make a recommendation to the patient.  Minor adjustments to the nose can certainly be done through a closed rhinoplasty procedure.

Thank you for the photographs, but it is difficult to see from the images what exactly you want. An exam in person is key.  Good luck!
