Hi and thank you for your message. Obtaining lip symmetry after a traumatic injury is challenging.

Make sure to go to a board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist that perform fillers regularly and have dealt with these issues before. Good luck Dr Sarraga

I have always disliked the size and bulbus overhanging end of my nose. My nasal bone is large as well but if I only focused on the end of my nose would I get good results? I can provide a photo.

Rhinoplasty is a very delicate operation; the nose can be reshaped but there are many aspects that go into the operative plan which is different for each patient. Seek a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon that regularly performs rhinoplasty; look at their photo book and communicate your desired look. Remember there are always limitations to what can be done.

What you are describing can be typical in advanced age but can also be seen in younger patients. Most likely you need a lip repositioning procedure to correct the proportions. In person consultation is necessary for planning.
