Alar or Nostril Rim Retraction
Please help with my nostrils (photo)
There are several described techniques to diminish the "nostril show," so nostril rim is lower compared to columella (strip between nostrils) and base of nose.
In your situation, my preference would likely be an attempt to lower the nostril rim rather than raising your columella and lateral alar base, although these are both possible approaches. Internal "V to Y plasty" and alar rim cartilage strut grafts (from ear) can be incorporated to accomplish this.

Rhinoplasty, some advices:
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, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.
