What can make the tip of my nose smaller? What are the options?

Temporary Fillers can be an option. Rhinoplasty limited to the tip is a more permanent option for your pointy nose. Your case is a prime example that making a nose smaller is not always the best option to making a nose more attractive.  I discovered a theory which I won an award for that explains why this is.  Your nasal tip should be the approximate size of the colored part of your eye, called the iris.   Fillers could fill around your nasal tip and make it looker larger to decrease the pointy sensation and appearance of your nasal tip.  This is temporary. I would suggest restylane as the best option and this would last from 6 months to a year.  A tip rhinoplasty can improve this as well.  I would sculpt cartilage to increase the size in a subtle way to improve the tips appearance.  This is usually done through an incision at the bottom of your nose that hides really well.  Recovery from a tip rhinoplasty is longer than for a temporary filler. Here is a video of myself doing a tip rhinoplasty.
