Rhinoplasty to improve upturned nose
There are some maneuvers to force the tip back down such as trimming the caudal septum, releasing some of the ligaments in the nose, and extended spreader grafts. All of these maneuvers can help to push the nasal tip downward.

It is certainly easier to raise the tip, but lowering the tip can be performed to derotate it. This can be done in several ways and also with grafts.
De-rotating the Nose with Rhinoplasty
The answer to your question depends on your choice of rhinoplasty surgeon. Your overly rotated nasal tip can be de-rotated or "fixed". It is one of the more advanced techniques in rhinoplasty so be sure to choose your rhinoplasty surgeon most carefully. Make sure to remove your tongue piercing before going into the operating room.
Good luck and be well.

Your tip can be de-rotated and your nose lengthened to correct the "pig-snout". A cartilage graft may or may not be necessary. You can achieve significant improvement if you see an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon.
