With the excess length of the nasal tip, Nose appears to be big in size and irregular.
One way to correct the projected nasal tip is to go with the traditional method of resetting and working on the underlying cartilage. If the projection is too sharp and can not be corrected with working Nasal tip itself. We have to work on the Maxilla spine of the nose responsible for the projection.
Sometimes working on both the nasal tip and Maxilla Spine is required to get the better results. This depends upon your evaluation with the doctor.
Spread or Wide Nose
Wide Nose can only be noticed from a front angle as wide nose appears normal from a side angle. When you have a thick nose skin your nose appears wide. While if the underlying bone structure of your nose is wide and spread your nose appears to be wide and such noses are difficult to operate upon.
When your Nose skin is thick, it can be reduced and made thin by working on the skin. Making your skin thin has some limitations and great results are difficult to achieve in this case.

Depressed Nose is corrected by raising the area of depression. Grafts or cartilage helps in raising the area of depression. Mostly grafts or cartilage are harvested from the ear bone.
If the depression is major then such depression can not correct using ear bone cartilage because they are short, In such cases, grafts which are strong, long and stiff are prepared from the Rib cartilage.

Multiple methods to reshape your nose may be required depending on the evaluation. A good and experienced cosmetic and plastic surgeon will help you in this regards. Big Noses are very complex to treat.
Though you have a big nose, an extremely small nose cannot be offered to you. A surgeon should always be realistic in terms of results and should explain this thing during the evaluation. Extremely small nose damage your facial harmony. Thus a big nose is corrected to the size which will suit you.
Big Nose is corrected by working underlying bone structure of the nose as discussed in the wide nose section of this page without disturbing you breathing function. A reduction in nose thickness and working on the tip may also be required. Depending upon the evaluation proper planning is done to get desired results.
