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.

Improving Bulbous Asian Nasal Tip
To address the bulbous shape, Asian rhinoplasty usually adds cartilage to strengthen the natural cartilage structure while forcing the thicker overlying soft tissue to have a more defined shape. This is commonly done with placement of what is called a shield-shaped tip graft made from septal or ear cartilage. In addition, alar rim grafts are frequently placed to make the tip appear even more naturally defined. By building on top of the already present native cartilage structure, the tip can be projected out nicely to provide added refinement and definition.
Asian rhinoplasty is a highly specialized form of cosmetic rhinoplasty that requires advanced training and considerable experience in rhinoplasty. It also demands careful preoperative evaluation of the nose and meticulous surgical planning to ensure the final result is one that appears natural and ethnically consistent. Please see a board certified cosmetic surgeon to help you come to a decision on whether you are a good candidate for such a procedure.
Asian nasal tips and techniques to make it appear smaller
Frequently, a request to make the tip less bulbous or smaller requires putting cartilage grafts in the tip to stretch the thick skin for a more defined tip.
Simply reducing the cartilage in the tip of an Asian patient will create a ball of skin that will remain bulbous. Even worse, scar formation can retract the tip up, producing an unpleasant result. Injectable fillers create more bulk and no structure, for a bigger rounder tip.
I encourage you to seek out a full consultation with a rhinoplasty surgeon who specializes in Asian/Ethnic rhinoplasty. They can fully evaluate your nose and explain the differences between your nose and other noses. You can ask questions. And the surgeon can determine a safe treatment plan for you.
