What type of rhinoplasty would be best suited to correct a narrow nose? My nose is narrow at the bottom, even near the nostrils. How can rhinoplasty repair this? What type of surgery is required? .

In brief: Open rhinoplasty

It's possible that your nose protrudes too far from your face, or that your cartilages near the nostrils are too narrow.
Photos would help to clarify this. An open rhinoplasty would address either or both of these 2 issues to effectively widen your nose.

In brief: You may

Also benefit from cartilage grafting and or a medpor implant to help open your passage ways.
You need a thorough exam of your nose to decide by an expert nasal surgeon.

In brief: Tension nose

If you have a very high dorsum as well then likely you have a tension nose.
That can be corrected by reducing the tip and dorsum tension by removing cartilage in the appropriate areas.

In brief: Without

Without seeing photos it's hard to say how your narrowness can be improved.
In some cases the narrowness is due to over-projection of the nasal tip. In these situations by bringing the tip in toward the face the narrownesscan also be addressed. Check out my link below for an example.
