From the frontal view, you can tell that this nose was shortened by looking for the nostrils.  We want to see just a small glimpse of the nostrils from this view.  That glimpse tells us that the nose is attractively short.  In the before picture above left, you can't see her nostrils at all, whereas in the after view, you do get just a small peek at the nostrils.

The rhinoplasty surgery tutorial contains an illustrated explanation of the relationship between the length of the nose and the view of the nostrils from the front (the surgery tutorials contain explicit photographs taken during surgery).

Questioner: Cost Approximation for Uneven Columella?
On the left (my right) you can see that the one side of my columella hangs approximately 3 millimeters lower than the other. I would like to even out my columella (raise the lower side to the higher). How much would this cost and how long I would need to wear bandages on my nose? Also, to even the columella out, would I need to cut off part of the columella or push the lower side higher? Explaining how one would go about this procedure would be very helpful! Thank you so much!
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Leave your columella alone
What you are asking for cannot be done with rhinoplasty. An attempt at a tiny correction of an isolated area of the nose like that would certainly create some new, more bothersome, problem elsewhere, or fundamentally change the size/shape/position of your tip.  All of these cartilages are connected to each other. 

Rhinoplasty isn't perfect enough, predictable enough, to make the kind of change that you are seeking.  I know, it'd be nice, but we just don't have it yet!
