Two cartilages form the tip of the nose, a left tip cartilage and a right
cartilage. In the before picture, you can see the depression, or dent,
between her two tip cartilages. They are quite prominent, and decreasing
their strength was an integral part of obtaining this result.
If you don't mind looking at photos taken during surgery, the
of the rhinoplasty surgery tutorial gives a good introduction to the anatomy of
the tip cartilages,

Please Could You Tell Me What They Can Do to my Nose to Make It Look Smaller. Would It Look Stupid?

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Reduce the hump, and bring the nose back closer to your face
From your photo, you seem to be a reasonable candidate for a rhinoplasty. See my "Web reference" link for a morph I made of your nose.
I brought the tip of your nose back closer to your face, and reduced the hump. I can't really tell from your photos here, but you may also have strong tip cartilages, and the tip could possibly be reduced in width.
