I'm wondering what the most appropriate method to address these issues. Columella tuck, alarplasty or anything else. Also how accurate are the computer generated projections provided by doctors?

Turned up nose
You did not state whether you have already had a previous rhinoplasty. To correct a turned up nose, I.e. Lengthen the nose you would need a graft via an open approach. Computer generated pictures are simply guides to help discuss the planning of the surgery and not guarantees of results.
Consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon with experience in rhinoplasty.

The tip can be brought down, and the alar base can be reduced.
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.
