I saw the computer changes with my surgeon from profile view , and I looked much better. But I am afraid that my nose , maybe giving me some good looking characteristics. I am afraid that I change it , and look plain. Do my concerns have some grounds?

I have performed Rhinoplasty for over 20 years and the purpose of a Rhinoplasty is to give the patient a more attractive nose that appears natural and not-operated. Having a natural, more attractive nose can't and won't ever do anything but improve the appearance of the face.
You may want to read my new book on the aesthetics of beauty, "What's Your Number..the palmer code", where I outline the beauty features of the face and body and their relative importance in making one perceived as male, female, attractive or less so. Facial beauty is defined by the Cheeks, Eye Area and Lips with the nose carrying a supportive role. The nose should be sleek and un-observed, so the top three aesthetic facial features shine through. therefore, having a twisted, large or somehow less than ideal nose can't make you more attractive.
If however, you like the character of your nose, by all means you shouldn't change it with a Rhinoplasty.

Will Rhinoplasty Improve your Appearance
The appearance of your nose will improve with a rhinoplasty . However you are correct - it may change your character and "personality". This will be a very personal decision. It is good that you've had the opportunity to see the new look with computer imaging.

Would you look better after rhinoplasty?
Since you have seen the computer images, you should carefully decide why you have considered to have rhinoplasty in the first place? Do you think there is a problem that can be solved with this operation or not? Cosmetic surgery may improve or correct most deformities but it may or may not improve perceptions one may have about one's appearance.
Rhinoplasty but maybe less attractive
This a very good question. The computer imaging should have given you some indication of which looks better the before or after. Its really a very personal opinion that you may have answer for yourself. From a purely aesthetic point of view your nose can be made to look more proportionate to your face. Whether it looks better or not is a question you have to answer yourself.
The better looking nose may not be who you are
It is true that rhinoplasty can give you a better looking nose. There can be a fear of a loss of the real you as you change your features for an 'ideal' look. There are many celebrities, politicians, performers, all who carry imperfections in their look and nasal features and are not held back, and for some it can be a defining feature, what makes them who they are. Take your time deciding what is the best you.
Best of luck,
