Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
Through rhinoplasty we make small changes, but that is quite noticeable.
After having analyzed all the info. and photos provided to us, i recommend you perform a Full Rhinoplasty, includding narrowing of the nasal base, with nasal bones treatment, and alar and triangular nasal cartilages shaping.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.

Your nose is anatomically different than the picture on the right
There are many Asians who want to westernize their appearance, whether it's eyes, nose, cheeks, and mouth. Because you have a "saddle" shaped nose the dorsum is flatter and the tip is wider. The key difference is that your skin is thick and the cartilage support is very flimsy. There are some procedures to thin out the appearance of the nostril and also augmenting the nasal dorsum where the graft will give the impression that the nostrils are smaller.
