How to straighten little tilted nose?

Septorhinoplasty to Straighten Nose
If depends which portion of the septum is deviated and whether you are having any breathing issues. If, as you describe, the entire nose is deviated and this is visible externally, then the portion of your septum that runs along your bridge likely needs to be straightened as well as whatever internal portion is deviated. This will change the appearance in that your nose will appear straighter after the surgery. It is possible to straighten the nose without changing the appearance of the nostrils, tip, or rest of your nose. It is not possible to say without an exam, but you may also need to have your nasal bones broken (osteotomies) to straighten your nose.
If the deviated septum is associated with difficulty breathing and airway obstruction, it may be covered by your health insurance carrier.
Without insurance, the present out of pocket expense is $4100 which includes the Board Certified Professional fee, Board Certified Anesthesia fee, and Medicare Approved Surgicenter fee.

How to correct a little tilted nose. Septoplasty? Rhinoplasty? or both?
Without seeing photos or in person consultation it is difficult to render an opinon.
if the tilt is minimal and you are otherwise very happy with the rest of your nose features, then I would not do anything or do minimal hayluronic acid injection in the hand of an expert injector.
If your breathing is greatly affected, then a septoplasty or septorhinoplasty may be the best option.
If you are not happy with the shape and can not breath well then a septorhinoplaty is a good option for you.
Hope this was helpful.
