I Think I Have a Hanging Columella? (photo)

I am very self conscious about my nose. Sometimes I dont want to smile because my nose dips down overlapping my top teeth so much and looks completely non proportional. What do you believe is the best procedure I can go through to help this problem, whether its surgical, or non surgical?

Rhinoplasty for a Hanging columella

 The photographs are inadequate to give an opinion as to whether or not a columella -plasty  should be performed.  An active depressor septi ligament will also make the tip droop upon animation, which can be released at the same time as the rhinoplasty and columellar-plasty. Please see the link below  to see how we have addressed a hanging columella in our  rhinoplasty practice
