Is it possible to turn a long, straight European nose into a softer, flatter Asian nose?

I have a typical European nose. Sharp, long. I want to have my nose transformed into something like this because I've always admired the aesthetic. Is this possible?

The answer is, to a degree. The limiting factor is always the volume, character, and distribution of your skin, because no one's soft tissues have an infinite ability to shrink. A straight nose is a particular surgical trap; my research has shown many of the worst secondary deformities occur in patients who originally had straight primary noses.

You may be able to have a different proportion or tip configuration or profile, but be careful that you do not try to exceed what your skin can safely allow, and make sure that you see a nasal surgeon experienced in nuanced changes.

Good luck.
