Nose hump and crooked
Hump removal is performed by shaving down cartilage and bone along the dorsum. A crooked nose is treated by resetting the nose bones with osteotomies. The osteotomies also narrow the nose to prevent a wide, open-roof deformity

It sounds as if you have multiple concerns. Without photos and based on your description it is difficult to determine exactly what the issues are. I would recommend consultations with a few qualified rhinoplasty surgeons.

Crooked and wide nose correction with rhinoplasty
Crooked and wide nose are common reasons for many patients seeking rhinoplasty. A crooked nose may result from deformed cartilage or deviated nasal bones. This is corrected by resetting the bones and cartilage framework. A wide nose is corrected by infracturing and the nasal bones. If the tip is wide, then tiplasty by reshaping the cartilage can give significant improvement to the nose. Posting pictures of your nose will be helpful to diagnose your concerns.
