I went in to have a rhinoplasty in January... My profile was improved trendously,but from the front, I look much worse. There is now a huge gap between my nose and my upper lip. .. It' unflasttering and I look WAY worse than before surgery... Can anything really e done to reduce this gap??? I had a nasal spine that maybe made the gap smaller.. but now that's gone and I don't know if it can be put back? What can I do? I don't like this new look from the front AT ALL!

Long upper lip
Very difficult to say from these pictures but you likely will need a lip lift to solve this issue for yourself.

Long Upper Lip
A profile view would be helpful. The lip can be shortened but this may increase the pout of your upper lip which may not be desirable. Lengthening your nose may camouflage the apparent length of your upper lip.

Difficult to understand the issue you're referring to from submitted photos. Long upper lip may be skeletal, soft tissue, or both. Sometimes, upper lip lift can help.
