Can I get these results from a rhinoplasty? (Photo)

You can get close to those results, but there aren't very many plastic surgeons who can do it for you.
See the "Web reference" link, just below my response. I made a computer morph, and an animation of the morph, to show the changes that are possible for your nose in truly expert hands. You can see, especially in the animation, that I brought the tip substantially closer to your face, and elevated the tip. The model also has a low bridge, and I tried to simulate that for you, too.
You should understand that the changes I demonstrated in the morph require advanced techniques, techniques that most plastic surgeons cannot handle. Be sure to read the section in the "Web reference" link on how to stay out of trouble while searching for a rhinoplasty surgeon. Short answer: your surgeon *must* be able to prove to you, with his before and after photos, that he can accomplish these changes. Otherwise, you, more perhaps than most, are likely to come out of surgery without the changes you wanted, but with a raft of new problems.
-tip lenght shortening

Let me not that in your wish pic the tip is, IMHO, overly rotated, might not fit well in your face, nevertheless this is just a cosmetic judgement and technically is feasible.

Can I get these results from a rhinoplasty?
A weak chin creates an imbalance making the nose appear larger, the mid face top heavy and the lower face look short that de-emphasizes the lips and allows early formation of a double chin. Chin augmentation using a chin implant will add projection to the chin creating harmony and balance to the lower face. I have found that placement of a silastic chin implant, through a small curved incision under the chin (also allows excess skin removal) to be very safe, quick and highly effective.
Rhinoplasty and chin implant placement, should your chin be weak, would allow the creation of a smaller, refined nose (similar to the model shown) with the similar facial harmony and balance.
Hope this helps.
Nose refinement with surgery
You should seek a consult with an experienced board certified plastic surgeon who has good reputation in nose surgery for detailed evaluation. Good luck.
Rhinoplasty surgery may be considered for obtaining a smaller, and more feminine nasal appearance.
A rhinoplasty can help take down a nasal hump and improve the overall aesthetics of the face. But more views and a in office consultation are important to understand the overall aesthetics and porportions of a face. Best of luck, MMT
