but open may be needed

Hmm. I don't think you changed it enough. Try mine.
You took a little bit off of the bump on the bridge of the nose, but you didn't address one of your issues: your nose is very strong in how it projects forward away from your face. When the nose projects like that, it tends to pull the upper lip forward, onto the bottom of the nose.
In my morph, I brought the tip of your nose back closer to your face. Actually, I raised the tip up a bit, too: it may not look like the tip came up, but when a bump is taken off the bridge, and when the nose comes back closer to the face, the nose has a tendency to *look* longer -- to look as though the tip dropped. So the surgeon has to elevate the tip so you don't end up with a nose that looks too long. Perhaps the tip of your nose could come up just a teeny bit more, depending on your preferences.
Also, if the bump is taken off, *without* bringing the tip back to the face, then the hump is no longer "masking" the strong forward projection of your nose, and it can make the nose look as though it's even more projecting than it is now. Coindidentally, tomorrow I'm doing a revision rhinoplasty on a young woman who had just that: a strongly-projecting nose with a hump. The hump was taken in the first operation, and the projection was left alone. So the nose looked even more projecting, and it looked wrong.
You should understand that the changes I demonstrated in the morph require advanced techniques, techniques that most plastic surgeons cannot handle. Particularly the large amount of deprojection, which is bringing the nose back closer to the face. Be sure to read the section in the "Web reference" link on how to stay out of trouble while searching for a rhinoplasty surgeon. Quick summary here, though: a) video imaging is **mandatory**, especially for a nose like yours, b) the surgeon **must** understand the issue of deprojection, and what it will do the apparent length of your nose and lip, c) the surgeon **must** have some before and after photos showing these kind of changes for you. His board-certification diploma is no evidence that he can make the changes he is promising.
Closed rhinoplasty candidate, some advices:
The harmony between facial parts makes us instinctively recognize the beauty... without knowing it, without defining it, just a perception that surprises and captivates us.
In this regard, I suggest perform a Closed Rhinoplasty (without visible scars) to treat the tip, base and nasal bridge.
With this procedure you get a delicate nose, better harmonize with your other facial features.
Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
Based on your photographs, you seem to be an excellent rhinoplasty candidate with realistic goals. While it's not as simple as shaving down the nasal dorsum, a conservative surgery can still be accomplished with a few other refining surgical maneuvers.
I wish you well!
