My Septum is Not Straight... What Procedure Can Fix This? Would I Need a Nose Job?

I noticed over the last 5 years my septum has kind of shifted and now my nose isn't symmetrical. How can I fix this? Would this cost as much as a full nose job? I don't want anything but this straight and to have nostrils the same size again!

Deviated septum

A deviated septum can cause nostril assymetry, breathing problems, and a crooked nose.  A thorough evaluation of your nose by a rhinoplasty expert would be necessary to evaluate whether a septoplasty alone or combined septoplasty and rhinoplasty would be necessary.
