This can be corrected with a septorhinoplasty but select a specialist because a deviated nose can be surgically challenging. Depending on the experience of your surgeon, it will cost a total of $6,000-9,000. If you have health insurance, the company may cover the functional part of your surgery which will improve nasal breathing.

 A  rhinoplasty will straighten a crooked nose. This will involve osteotomies, spreader graft on the concave side and performing other adjustments to make the nose more symmetrical.  A deviated septum is usually performed for medical necessity due to an airflow  restriction through the nose and is billed separately to the patient's medical insurance for medical necessity. The cost of  a rhinoplasty is  approximately $7000. Please see the  link below for other crooked noses as we have straightened in our  rhinoplasty practice.

To answer your questions, it is first difficult to see everything in photos because part of your nose is cut off in the pictures. Some crookedness is from asymmetry of the face, and so most can be corrected but never perfectly straight.

Achieving greater symmetry with septorhinoplasty

The deviation of your septum and your nasal tip can be improved with septoplasty/rhinoplasty.  The septal deviation is contributing to the overall deviation of your nose.  Costs will vary by location, surgeon experience and surgeon expertise.
