Very long Uvula

I have been working at singing for a very long time and still have a problem. I have a very long uvula that touches the back of my tongue. Even when I say it's the "la" it doesn't go up very much or even when I yawn. I am going flat a lot and when I go up it sounds as I am "pushing". Should I have it shortened? Am I just doomed and will never be able to sing ? Thank you in advance.
If you’re working on lifting your soft palate then you are more than likely new to singing and I would focus on mastering the basics first before considering surgery.
I agree with @Wigs: it would be great to have videos of the LAH scale in 2 versions. This could help us to help YOU. And this is what we are willing.
