Your skin is also thicker, and this can have a huge impact on the final outcome. It is unlikely that you can expect to have a very well defined nose/tip due to your natural skin thickness.
There are also limitations on how "small" your nose can go, without compromising breathing. Above all make sure you find the right surgeon for you, who can answer all your questions while making you feel comfortable. Take your time finding the right surgeon for you!

This appears to be a form of malposition of the alar cartilage. This requires a special technique to put the cartilage in the proper position, possibly trim some lateral crus, and maybe graft the rim and put in a tip graft. The most important thing is to make the proper diagnosis.
Best wishes and good luck.

Every nose is different and unique to that individual. If the appearance of your nose concerns you enough to do something about it, it can be improved with a natural artistically performed rhinoplasty. What would be the best option and exact procedure would depend on an in person examination (not just an online consultation) and discussion about desired outcome. Excellent results can be achieved with either a closed or open technique.
Keep in mind that following advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you exactly what to do and how technically to do it based on two dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling your tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history and discussing the pros and cons of the operative procedure would not be in your best interest. Natural appearing results need to be individualized and what is appropriate for one patient is not necessarily the best for someone else. I would suggest that you find a surgeon with extensive rhinoplasty experience certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and one who is ideally a member of The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
