Welcome to the forum!!!
To achieve the results you desire, the tip will have to be refined, which will affect the projection of your nose as well. You need a surgeon that is well versed in tip reconstruction and/or refinement.
You can be born with alar retraction, however, rhinoplasty or tauma are the more common ways that cause this condition. Trauma to the lower nose can also result in retraction. Did you ever break your nose or have any nasal trauma? How is your breathing?
Retraction is present in your case, but it is not as obvious as some I have seen. When people are not born with rim retraction it can be caused by excision, cartilage division, excision of too much alar sidewall mucosa, and/or alar skin excision. When someone is born with alar retraction, it can be due to over-arching alar cartilages that are usually long and plunging, or due to alar cartilage not being in the right spot. Localized skin flaps with or without cartilage grafting can be used to restore form and function.
Overdeveloped quadrangular cartilage with alar retraction can further exaggerate the amount of columellar show, which is what you're complaining about.
General anesthesia would be recommended for your procedure. Local anesthesia is used for minor alterations.
You have great eyes, eyelashes, and lips. I really like the black and white photo of you, where your entire face is visible. There is a dramatic heir about it, and you look lovely in it!
