OP, you might consider conversing with sethoflagos about that. He's gone through that same process and is wise enough to advise.
FYI, and others the Carnegie Music Hall I referred to in Carnegie PA can be seen in the picture at Http://www.carnegiecarnegie.org Yes, in the website it is Carnegie twice.
Man I hope you had a teacher encourage the embouchure change. I completely rebuilt my technique from the ground up under the observation and instruction of someone I trusted new what he was doing, Adam Rapa. There were some scary times in the beginning but the perceverence has paid off extremely well. If you're on a forum asking I suspect not so make a smart move and pay for lessons and a teacher somewhere. This could end well or horribly, hopefully the former!

I reviewed your original post earlier this year and can say that I used to have an embouchure similar to yours during the first few years I played. I approached my band director (tuba player) about making an embouchure change after my 9th grade year in high school. It took me the better part of the years worth of private lessons to complete the change. The "law of the farm" applies here, there are no shortcuts. As frustrating as it is now, keep at it and it will be worth it in the end.
