Surgical management via rhinoplasty is my preference as it is permanent, especially given your young age. In addition, depending on the type of bump you have, filling it may cause the aesthetics to not match the rest of the nose.
Rhinoplasty surgery would be necessary to correct a nasal hump. I would recommend a consult with a board certified rhinoplasty specialist. He/she will be able to examine your nose in person and provide you with advice. Computer imaging software may be used, where your surgeon can morph a photo of you. This will give you an idea of how the final result of surgery may appear. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.
The hump can be reduced through a closed
rhinoplasty approach with minimal downtime and permanent results.
Find a board certified plastic surgeon 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.

Based from you photos, you are not a good candidate for filler injection (non-surgical option). As discerned from your oblique view photo, injecting filler above or below the hump will make your nose too high which may appear masculine. A simple surgery may correct the bump once you are more ready for it.
Stephanieduran, you need a fairly routine rhinoplasty. See several rhinoplasty specialists and look at many of their photos. Good luck!
Non- surgical correction of the dorsal hump usually consists of placing a filler into the areas just above and just below the hump for camouflage. If an absorbable filler is used, the procedure needs to be repeated so often. Based on your photo your dorsal hump is fairly prominent and I am not sure you'd be able to get a nice results with fillers. In your case, surgery is definitely a much better option. It will provide you with a better result and a long term correction. It will be financially more lucrative in the long run as well.
Why non-surgery? You will be throwing money away. When the injected material absorbs, you will have the same bump.
Based on pictures alone, your bump can easily be removed with nasal surgery. In my NJ practice, this procedure costs $4100 which includes all fees: professional, anesthesia, and surgicenter.
