Best look for rhinoplasty.
Although there are options, most patients are looking for a straight dorsum (especially in men) or a hint of the dorsum being lower than the nasal tip (women), also called a supra tip break. Either would look good, so it's a personal choice. Have a consultation with your plastic surgeon so you can learn about how how your nasal contour can be refined to what you want.

Rhinoplasty candidate for profile adjustment and hump removal
Yes, you are a good candidate for the rhinoplasty procedure. The amount of slope on the bridge line is a personal decision, and either is slight slope or a straight profile would look good. Personally, we prefer a very slight slope when performing rhinoplasty, however if the patient so desires we can leave a straight bridge line as well when asked to do so. Computer imaging would also help determine which profile you like the best.
The photographs demonstrate a small hump, a droopy tip and an active depressor septi ligament. When performing the rhinoplasty procedure, it is important to release the depressor septi ligament, elevate the tip and shave the hump down. For many examples of nose are similar to your own, please see the link below
What would look good on me: a slight slope or straight profile with a slight elevation at the tip?
Either is fine. This is an aesthetic judgement call.

Rhinoplasty for a straight or slightly sloped profile
- You can morph both images and see what would look better
- Ultimately, it is a decision to be made by both you and your surgeon

A slope is not usually pleasing on any nose and would make the nose look surgical. The elegant noses usually have a straight bridge with a barely perceptible elevation of the tip beyond the bridge.
It looks like you are a good candidate for rhinoplasty and could benefit from surgery to straighten your nose. Best of luck.
