Keep in mind, that following the advice from a surgeon on this or any other website who proposes to tell you what to do based on limited 2 dimensional photos without examining you, physically feeling the tissue, assessing your desired outcome, taking a full medical history, and discussing the pros and cons of the proposed operative procedure with you and your parents may not be in your best interest. I would suggest you find a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) or facial plastic surgeon (otolaryngologist) that you trust and are comfortable with. You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.

Natural looking rhinoplasty

A properly performed rhinoplasty should leave you with a totally natural result. To me you look as if you would get your best result by decreasing your bump and by refining the tip of your nose. While it is difficult to completely straighten noses to get perfect symmetry you should be able to get a significant straightening of your nose which looks bent to the left on your photograph.
The only way to reliably achieve straightening of your nose is by performing an open rhinoplasty with straightening of the bridge using fine cartilage grafts which are best obtained from your nasal septum. This also can help to improve your breathing if you have any current breathing problems.
