How to Fix Bad Results from Bullhorn Upper Lip Lift?

Years ago, I had a Rhinoplasty and was very happy with the results. Then I had a bullhorn upper Lip lift a year ago. Now my lip to nose ratio has improved but I have a new problem, my nostils are HUGE. My columella now hangs much lower than my outer nostrils.

I look as though I am always sniffing something AND now the skin between my upper lip and columella puffs out like an ape. I have to fix this!! What should I do?

Correction of Bull's Horn Lift

This is a confusing problem and I am not sure that there is an easy fix. Examination is clearly required. There are options but some may involve more scars or risk.
