Osteotomies placed in the nasal bones accomplish narrowing them and straightening them as well when they are crooked. Once the dorsal hump has been shaved down, osteotomies are required to close the open roof created from the hump removal. Rhinoplasty is a very difficult endeavor, so choose your surgeon very wisely based on extensive experience. For more information about osteotomies and many before-and-after examples of narrowing a wide nose, please see the link and the video below
Thanks for your question. Based on your desires and photos, you may very well get good results from just the lateral osteotomies. Please see an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon for full evaluation. Good luck.
Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, you may benefit from a tip refining rhinoplasty. Your surgeon can
accomplish this by trimming, suturing, and reshaping the cartilage in your
lower nose. You may also benefit from osteotomies to narrow your nose. Make sure you specifically look at before and after
pictures of real patients who have had this surgery performed by your surgeon
and not just a computer animation system. The most important
aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek
consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate
you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.

Rhinoplasty, some advices:
Thank you very much for sharing your concerns with us.
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.

To achieve results similar to your goal, osteotomies can be used to narrow the upper portion of the nose, but the tip must be reduced as well to balance the result and your nose. This can all be done in closed fashion.
