Hello and thank you for your question. Based on your
photograph, you may benefit from a nasal tip de-projection. This can solve the exact problem you are having. Make sure you specifically look at before and after
pictures of real patients who have had this surgery performed by your surgeon
and not just a computer animation system. The most important
aspect is to find a surgeon you are comfortable with. I recommend that you seek
consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate
you in person.
Best wishes and good luck.

I do not think you can get a long lasting result with a non-surgical method and maneuvers focused on lowering the tip a bit can help improve the appearance. Best of luck.
Correcting her nose with rhinoplasty
In my experience, the problem that you have presented cannot be reliably fixed without surgery in the long-term. In my practice, for patient to have your problem, we offer surgical rhinoplasty which can be done as outpatient, and has an approximately 10-14 day recovery. The steps taken will have to be in line with her goals, but in such a case, my patients and I might consider fixing the short length of the nose and the angle of columella to the lip and refining the tip.
