Crooked nose repair and snoring
Snoring is a Harmonic vibration of the soft palate and has nothing to do with rhinoplasty. If there is a deviated septum present or additional nasal obstruction, medications or surgery can improve the air flow through the nose which may have some benefit on snoring. Fillers placed inside the nose will not straighten it.

- The septum could still be deviated and would need to be addressed
- Since your nose is crooked and narrow at the bridge, placement of supporting spreader grafts and rim grafts will help stabilize the nose, and straighten it so you can breathe better
- I would seek out a rhinoplasty specialist with experience in functional rhinoplasty
