What would be involved in the process of changing it my nose to look how I have photoshopped it? (photo)

Have you considered a #nonsurgical #rhinoplasty to camouflage your dorsal nasal hump?
You might want to try filler such as restylane or juvederm. One could likely hide the small dorsal hump and give you something close to what you are showing. It is a simple in-office procedure with no downtime. Fillers last about 1 to 1,5 years in this location.
Otherwise, surgically, hump removal and tip refinement would be required, using a combination of suture and grafting techniques.
Hope this helps!

Feasible and realistic
Let me suggest some additional refinements:
-removing the interdomal cleft / groove visible due your thin skin; easy to achieve with plasties at the domes and plication medially
-not so aggressive upwards rotation of tip; this is of course disputable, but IMHO you have chosen a too high tip position that might lead to nostrils exposure in the frontal view
-you suffer from oversized weak / soft triangle, with a flaccid portion of the nostril rim and a dip near the tip at the margin; this might be corrected by a tiny grafting to bridge the gap
Seek opinion of expertes in nasal refinements and not just on rhinoplasty experts.
NEVER ever accept fillers in a nose!
Changing your nose
Thank you for your clinical post and photograph. The changes you’ve outlined in the photoshopped and altered profile image are very reasonable and achievable in the hands of an experienced and expert rhinoplasty surgeon. Rhinoplasty is the art and science of altering the nasal bones and soft tissue collages of the nose to improve nasofacial balance and proportion. The slight bridge reduction and refinement of the tip are reasonable expectations and should be achieved in the hands of an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon.
I would see the advice and consultation with a specialist in plastic surgery or ear, nose, throat, head and neck oncology and insist on computer imaging. Computer imaging can show range of improvements that can likely be achieved such as you have shown your photoshop, but from the perspective of the operative surgeon.
With this “try before you buy” it is unusual for patients to be unhappy with the range of outcomes that can be achieved.
Discussions of functional nasal surgery such as airway improvement especially when the nose is smaller should be part of the consultation process. I’ve been fortunate to be performing rhinoplasty surgery for 24 years and was trained in both ENT head and neck oncology and plastic surgery.
I hope this information is of some assistance and best of luck.
