Lip lift to improve smile? (Photo)

When I smile. My upper lip doesn't lift up far enough to show teeth. I am considering getting a lip lift. My question is, am I being realistic? Would I have to get a rhinoplasty as well? I am kind of in a budget. Would a rhinoplasty and lip lift he possible in a $10,000 to $15,000 price range in Pennsylvania.

Lip lift

It is hard to tell in your photos, but the distance between your nose and upper lip is already quite short.  If you had a lip lift, this may result in an unnatural appearance.  A lip lift can look natural if there is a longer distance between the nose and upper lip that can be corrected.  Usually, this is in older individuals.  Please seek a board certified specialist for a consultation.
