I'm trying to determine which procedure would give me the best results in correcting the asymmetry in my nose: a Rhinoplasty or a Non-Surgical Nose Job? I heard the Non-Surgical Nose Job procedure is much cheaper but I'm not sure if it would be enough to straighten out my crooked nose.
Would a Non-Surgical Nose Job Correct the Asymmetry in my Nose?

I have performed Rhinoplasty, Revision Rhhinoplasty, Nasal Surgery for over 20 years and yes, non-surgical Rhinoplasty (which is the term for placement of soft tissue fillers to the nose to correct asymmetries) would be beneficial in your particular case from the photo provided. I typically use a smaller molecule filler to start like Restylane or Juvederm and then follow up treatments at 6-9 months can be done with Radiesse (lasts up to a year) once added volume has been created under the skin.

Liquid rhinoplasty vs surgery for crooked nose
Your nose has a deviation of both the bones and cartilages. A non-surgical rhinoplasty can make your nose look straighter by filling the concave left side. However, it will also make your nose look wider. You seem like a young man, so it won't be long before temporary filler costs will mount, making the non-surgical rhinoplasty cost more in the long run. Finally, remember that if your nose was broken or if you have a breathing problem, this surgery will be covered by insurance. Hope that helps. Dr. Constantinides.
Non-Surgical Nose Job will NOT straighten a crooked nose / deviated septum
Non-surgical nose job involves placing a soft tissue filler on top of the nose to improve contour mild contour deformities. Such fillers will not correct a deviated septum. In your case you have a deviation of the middle third of the nose to the right. The ONLY way to correct this is with a Septoplasty, in which the middle partition of the nose is surgically straightened.
