I dislike the left side of my nose. Specifically the way it sticks out compared to the right side. What can I do? (photos)

When i take a picture from the left side of my face my nose seems like it sticks out more than when i take a picture of the right side of my face. I think the ride side of my nose looks much better than the left, because the right side it more upturned and the left side just projects out more. I was just wondering what kind of procedure would fix this minor issue i have. Could it just be the shape of my nostril?

Rhinoplasty for minor irregularities

There are some subtle changes can be made to the nose, however it may not be worthwhile undergoing a rhinoplasty procedure to make a significant difference. Virtual rhinoplasty software is  available on  our website along with our rhinoplasty photo gallery to give you an idea what can and cannot be accomplished with the procedure.

I think your nose looks good, and minor asymmetries should be left alone.  I may feel differently after an exam.
 
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.
