You could have just the tip done, but it looks like you need your nose shortened and narrowed as well. Recovery is one week with bandages on. You should go on n a few cases nulls with surgeons in your town known for their rhinoplasty work and get a few different opinions and options presented to you. You're a pretty young lady and I think you would gets great result!
A closed rhinoplasty approach can accomplish narrowing the bulbous tip, narrowing the bridge and shaving down the dorsal hump. The nose will still widen when smiling due to the attachment of the smile muscles to the base of the nose. The nostrils can be narrowed with an alar-plasty. A cast is applied across the bridge of the nose for one week, and anticipate 2 weeks of visible bruising and swelling after the procedure
What kind of nose job do I need? And when do they take the bandages off?
Hi, you have a wide nasal tip that can be thiined and refined with a Tip-plasty instead of an entire Rhinoplasty. We frequently perform Tip-plasties in less than an hour, no nasal packing and steri-strip surgical tape is applied to the nasal tip for 1 week. Hope this helps.
I like my nose except for the bulbous tip...
The bulbous tip can be softened without changing the over all shape of the nose. You'll need to meet with a Board Certified Facial Plastic surgeon that specializes in Rhinoplasty to discuss your goals and set a plan.
What kind of nose job do I need?
Improving and refining a bulbous
tip to achieve an improved natural appearing cosmetic result is a frequent
request of patients wanting nasal refinement. It is possible to improve the
cosmetic appearance of the tip alone without altering the rest of the nose in
some patients. Whether the optimal option in your particular situation would be
a tip rhinoplasty alone or a full rhinoplasty would best be determined at a
consultation. Either procedure can be performed with a closed or open approach.
Following the advice from a surgeon on this or
any other website who proposes to tell you exactly what to do based on limited
2 dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling the 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. I would suggest you find a plastic surgeon with extensive nasal
surgery experience who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery
and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery
(ASAPS) or a facial plastic surgeon (ENT) that you trust and are comfortable
with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

Improvement of Nasal Tip
Every rhinoplasty is individualized. After viewing these pictures I feel it wold be reasonable to restrict the work o improving your wide bulbous tip. Consult with a rhinoplasty specialist to discuss your options and clarify your goals.
Tip Cosmetic Rhinoplasty
I would recommend you consult with a surgeon, like myself, who focuses a large part of their practice on cosmetic rhinoplasty surgery. From the photos provided, it looks like a tip cosmetic rhinoplasty is going to be your best choice - especially if you desire to maintain a similar profile look. I am happy to offer you our usual complimentary cosmetic consultation here in San Diego.
Value of Board Certification
I suggest that 1)you consult a board
certified facial plastic surgeon to receive the highest quality knowledge,
treatment, care and skill available. A consultation provides you the opportunity to relay your
concerns and desired outcome to the surgeon while the surgeon can assess your
health profile and discuss his/her pertinent advice. I also suggest you should keep in mind that, 2) the
nose is an individual characteristic. For many, the most attractive nose is one that is natural and
proportional for the face.
Each rhinoplasty is individualized depending on the patient. I understand that you would like to refine your current nose but keep some views the same. It is tough without an in person examination to be more specific than to say "I think what you are talking about is reasonable". Your consultation would require computer imaging to make sure you and the surgeon are on the same page. The bandages usually come off in a week.
Best of luck
