Is it possible to reduce my Nasolabial angle?
Find a board certified plastic surgeon 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.

Rhinoplasty candidate for nasolabial angle
It is possible change the nasal labial angle but only a minimal difference. Shaving the bony hump will give more of a difference. A columellar- plasty can help reduce the prominent columella. For many examples of a columellar-plasty please see the link below
Nasolabial Angle Reduction in Rhinoplasty
Reduction of your nasolabial angle can be done and what you have imaged is not an unrealistic outcome from doing it. This is the result of your anterior nasal spine and lower edge of the caudal septum and/or a hanging columella. A physical exam can make that determination. Either way your nasolabial angle can be reduced as part of your rhinoplasty procedure.
