Straightening a nose after fracture
To get an absolutely straight nose is difficult even for the most experienced surgeon.
After examination of your nose a rhinoplasty surgeon will do digital imaging to show you what you might expect.
You should seek out a surgeon who has extensive experience in rhinoplasty

Unfortunately your situation now is very different to the time when the bones were actually broken. At that time the bones are mobile and relatively easy to reposition. Over time the bones heal in their new position and become strong and immovable.
In addition often there can be secondary changes as a result of the repositioning of the bones.
I would expect that the only option at this point would be a rhinoplasty for you.
I hope that is helpful
You would need a rhinoplasty at this point
Nasal bone fractures
I'm so sorry to hear about your broken nose many years ago! Nasal trauma can lead to broken nasal bone and if they are not "reduced" or put into place soon after the injury, they can heal in an abnormal position and lead to deviation in the dorsal line of your nose. That being said, a rhinoplasty with osteotomies can help. Sometimes spreader grafts may be needed as well to help really reinforce the dorsal aesthetic lines of the nose and help with deviation. Best of luck, MMT
Since it has been several years since your nasal fracture, an open procedure like rhinoplasty would be required. I would recommend consulting with a facial plastic surgeon who regularly performs nasal surgery to explore your options.
