Let's try to evaluate the surgical changes from this frontal view.
You can see some of the changes from removing the hump: the before picture has
two parallel vertical white stripes along the dorsum of his nose.
Those stripes are the return from the flashes in my photo room. The
stripes give you a feel for the position of the dorsum and the presence of the
hump, and they are missing in the after picture.
Nasal length: in the after picture, we can see just a glimpse of his
nostrils. That glimpse is our indication that his nose was shortened,
because in the before picture, his somewhat droopy tip hung over and obscured
our view of the nostrils.
Actually, he has his head tilted down slightly in the before picture, but the
analysis is still valid. (You can tell that his head is tilted down a bit by
looking at his right eye and his right ear. In the after picture, his
right eye is at the level of the top of his ear. In the before picture,
his right eye sits below the level of the top of the ear.)

Would the Results I Desire Be Possible and Not Risky?
I feel my nose is simply out of place on my long face with my relatively deep set eyes and tiny lips. I would very much like a much finer and upward tip, generally finer nose and no dorsal hump what so ever. However, a surgeon would have to work with my nose and make the best of it, they can't simply give me a brand new one. Would the results I want as on the picture (excuse my crude photoshop-ing) be too tricky and risky?
(Questioner submitted photos)
Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your morphing is excellent, and your proposed changes are possible
Your proposed changes are certainly possible. See my "Web reference" link for a proposed change to your morph. I re-made it, taking down the small prominence that you left on your bridge just above the tip. That prominence should be taken down, as in my morph, to give the bridge a straighter appearance and make the tip look more delicate.
Be sure to see lots of before and after photos of the surgeon you pick, to make sure he has been able to accomplish for other people what you want for yourself.
