How to get a straight nose
Many thanks for posting your question. Having had 2 rhinoplasties, you are now in a challenging position.
You still have a significant deviation to your nose, appearing to arise from your septum (the partition between the nostrils).
It might be that the only way to reliably correct this is to perform what is known as an extra-corporeal septoplasty, in which all the remaining septum is removed from your nose, and reshaped before being re-inserted. You might not have much cartilage left, and if not, some cartilage might need to be taken from your ears or ribs as a spare part.
Sorry if this sounds quite dramatic, but in situations like yours, all options have to be considered.
I wish you luck in improving your nose
