If your July 2017 photo- is your current nose-- then -yes- i agree it appears longer. Without a detailed and in person examination- it is difficult to comment completely. However, in general- a reduction Rhinoplasty for you would helpful and indicated. I would approach this from an endo-nasal technique (without a columella scar)- which can be done in a hands of an experienced Board Certified PS

Long nose after surgery

I am not sure I can make your nose look like AJ.  But I do believe I could make your nose look a lot nicer with a revision.  I agree it does look longer and more projecting after surgery.
