Am I a good candidate for Rhinoplasty(Ethnic)? (photos)

Im considering getting ethnic rhinoplasty and have already decided who I want to perform the surgery (& YES I've done my homework) I have a bulbous tip a very small hump on my bridge & a wide nose (More so at the base) Here's what I would like - Alar base reduction, mild narrowing of nasal bridge, hump removed (different ways possible) Bulbous tip corrected. Is this understandable?

Thank you very much for the question.
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, After having analyzed all the info. and photos provided to us, i recommend you perform an Open Full Rhinoplasty, includding narrowing of the nasal base and nostrils, with nasal bones treatment (controled fracture) and alar + triangular nasal cartilages re-shaping.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.

  All of those changes sound reasonable, but the execution of each of these is the key.

You certainly look like you are a reasonable candidate although other views and really an exam in person would be necessary.
