My Mouth Protrudes and I Have No Nose Bridge? (photo)

Hi I have protruded mouth, no bridge and a slightly receded chin. I know that for know I would like a bridge on my nose, the tip slightly down and the chin moved forward. But I am concerned about my protruded mouth. I would want it to be more flat, or at least so its more balanced looking with my nose and chin. Do I need to find a surgeon that can move the protruded mouth back? Or can it be fixed with just adjusting the nose and the chin?

Do your teeth fit together or does your upper teeth stick forward? By projecting your chin and changing your nose, your upper lip fullness may be adequately camouflaged . If not, and if your bite is normal, then a central lip reduction would work.
