From the picture you can tell that the surgeon made a mess. Looking at the picture, do you think a surgery is necessary?
My nose looks like it's cut in the middle, and looks like an extension? (photo)

Based on your photo, you appear to be a great candidate for Reconstructive Rhinoplasty. You are not a filler candidate. Consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who does lots of Rhinoplasty surgeries, as reconstruction with cartilage grafts maybe needed. Best wishes!
No fillers, please! But I believe improvements can be made.
I know it's just one photo that you posted, but there are generally ways to improve the areas that you complain about in a revision rhinoplasty.
The "dents" can often be filled in with cartilage grafting, and they can be made further inconspicuous by lowering prominences of bone next to the dents.
Then, I don't know whether this bothers you, but the tip of your nose can be raised, too. Whenever a nose is a little smaller, the bothersome features often are less noticeable. I shortened your nose in my morph.
My guess is that the doctor who recommended fillers or fat grafting does not perform revision rhinoplasty. Respectfully, I just think that's not a good solution for what I see in your photo.

It is hard to make an assessment from one photo, but I do think a revision rhinoplasty could address those issues.
Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of rhinoplasties and rhinoplasty revisions each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
