If Nasalis and LLSAN Were Disabled, Could Frontal Process of Maxilla then Be Augmented, Controlling Nostril Movement? (photo)

I have a gummy smile, caused by nostril movement. Could nasalis and LLSAN be disabled, allowing the frontal process of maxilla be augmented as a way to restrain and reorientate nostrils, thus effecting smile. what are your thoughts? I am not saying that I think disabling Nasalis and LLSAN (the part which inserts into the ala) would effect smile, as these muscles are not typically used to smile, but rather to avoid being in conflict with the implant. I would be concerned about tearing otherwise.
