My nose goes crooked when I smile due to severely deviated septum. Will a septoplasty fix this? (Photo)

A deviated septum can cause breathing difficulties as well as a crooked nose
What's more interesting is that typically the nose tilts externally to the opposite side of the internally deviated septum and nasal blockage.
Fixing a "deviated septum" from a functional and insurance point of view will help breathing but not external tilting of the nose. That requires more complex surgery and a rhinoplasty to correct. You should see a septorhinoplasty specialist for an evaluation and qualfifed medical opinion.
