Thank you for your question.
Without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of any treatments it is difficult to be comprehensive.
Based on the single view you have provided:
I would agree that the dorsal hump should be removed, while softening the radix transition with a graft, and refine the tip further. To straighten the nose likely osteotomies will be necessary especially with the hump removal.
I would seek care from a board certified facial plastic surgeon in your area.
Rhinoplasty, septoplasty and turbinate surgery
A septoplasty and turbinate surgery is performed to improve air flow dynamics through the nose which most the documented as medical necessity in your physician's office after a consultation and internal nasal examination.
Functional nasal surgery for breathing and cosmetic nasal surgery can be performed at the same time, however there are 2 completely separate procedures.
