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

+2

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.

     If you want the nose to be reduced in width, this is easy to accomplish and it should not appear wide after surgery.  The crooked nature of the nose can always be improved, but this is hardly ever 100%.

Rhinoplasty and nasal width

When taking down a dorsal hump/bump, the nose may look a bit wide. That is why infracturing of the bones is performed so that the nose does not appear too wide.
