Her long nose required elevating the tip, taking down a hump, and shortening the nose.  But she had another operation, too.  She had a chin augmentation, to make her weak chin appear stronger.

In a chin augmentation, an implant is placed in front of the jaw bone to bring the chin forward.  Bringing the chin forward at the same time as making the nose smaller puts the face in better balance.  The profile gets an improvement that the rhinoplasty alone couldn't achieve.

Questioner: 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.
