Rhinoplasty for long nose
It is possible to shorten the nose with a combination of techniques affecting the tip cartilages, the caudal septum and the dorsal projection. An in person consultation and examination is usually required. Computer imaging can help, but importantly use high resolution camera to see the true results
How Much Can My Nose Be Narrowed and the Tip Raised?
Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon that performs lots of Rhinoplasty Surgeries. An exam is needed to determine exactly what is recommended. Based on your photos, you have reasonable goals. Best wishes!

That is a reasonable and achievable goal.
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.
