A side profile of the nose is required to make any decisions regarding columellar-plasty. The columellar-plasty procedure involves shaving down cartilage and skin on both sides of the columella within incisions located inside the nose. For many examples of a columellar-plasty , please see the link below

Treatment of the hanging columella and possible short nose. I need to see better photographs to tell you whether removal of the excess hanging columella will give you what you want. If not then this can be lengthened.

Sometimes this can create that illusion, but I cannot make a recommendation from the single picture.

Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
