Non surgical nose job for short, wide, no-bridge nose? (photos)
Doctor Answers 4
Injection rhinoplasty (also known as non-surgical rhinoplasty) could be appropriate
Indeed, when the nose is short and wide, the bridge looks lower. In your case, the bridge appears to be amenable to being raised and using a filler might be an excellent alternative to a standard surgical rhinoplasty.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty works because tiny drops of Silikon 1000 are injected just under the nasal skin. Over time, the body walls off those drops with new tissue which provides the plumping action to fill in divots, low spots or marks in the nose. The same effect can happen with plain salt water to provide a preview how the nose will look on completion of treatment.

Thank you for sharing your question and photos. In a non-surgical rhinoplasty, fillers are placed to add volume to the nose.
In your case, fillers could placed over the nasal bridge to give it more height on the profile view. A higher nasal bridge would also make your nose look more narrow from the front view because there would be more shadowing on either side of the bridge. This would also increase the length of your nose on both profile and front views.
