Lip lift candidate
I agree that you already have nice proportions based from your photos, but, if you really want to shorten your nose-lip distance, it is still possible, but it should be done very conservatively.
Good candidate for a lip lift?
I would agree with this much of your assessment: your lips are very nicely proportioned, your dental show is altogether fine. Your smile is pleasant. In my opinion, a lip lift could be a source of a multitude of unforeseen and undesired complications (scarring, sensory and motor changes of your upper lip or nostrils) for what I believe would be very minimal potential benefit.
