How to correct a long narrow bent nose with Rhinoplasty?
Photos would help in the evaluation. What caused your nose to be bent and overly narrow? Was it trauma or previous Rhinoplasty? These are just a few of the things that I'd need to know before making any sort of recommendation. You might consider having a few consultaions for Rhinoplasty.
