I would encourage you not to pursue zygoma reduction since your midface looks very youthful and feminine. For your nose you really addressed all of the things I would have mentioned. It would be surprising if you could breathe normally since it is so narrow. Your rhinoplasty would mainly involve bringing the tip of your nose closer to your face. This would also mean smoothing out and straightening your dorsum.
Reducing the back of your jaw would look nice to create more of a heart-shaped face. I use incisions inside the mouth to gain access to the bone and shape it with a powered rasp. You stay quite swollen for a month, and it gradually goes down over about 3 months. In my opinion, actually placing a small chin implant would make your nose look smaller even though you mentioned you don't want chin augmentation.
Thank you for your question Kristen,
