Could a nose job get my nose like this? Ethnic Rhinoplasty question! (photos)

It's important to seek out a surgeon experienced with Asian rhinoplasty, and with an eye for Asian beauty.
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.

Ethnic rhinoplasty can be successful.
If the base of your nose is wide, you will probably have to have nostril narrowing. Using that technique, the walls of your nostrils will be a lot closer to the midline. You look like a good candidate for that because the walls themselves are thin, but the sill or base of the nostril is wide. Look into that possibility when you go for consultation. Your tip is not as wide as others, so that is good news. It looks like your skin is fairly thin and that is even more good news.
Now you need to do your homework. Do consultations with surgeons who are super specialists in cosmetic nasal surgery and also in ethnic rhinoplasty. Look at the practices’ websites. Look at the before and after photos. There should be plenty of them, including patients who have had procedures similar to yours. Read reviews. Read testimonials. Read what patients have to say about the experience. Be sure to ask to have computer imaging when you go so that you have a very clear idea of what the doctor feels would be appropriate for you and whether you would be satisfied with that result.
Remember, generally the operations are done through internal incisions, but if you are going to narrow the nostrils and therefore reduce the width of the base of the nose, there will be some external incisions that have to be made so be sure to look for photographs and the patient’s journeys or progression through the healing process. An extensive website will have that type of information for you.
