As an artist I like using the reshaping technique when performing Rhinoplasties. Using advanced suturing techniques I can change the shape of the nasal cartilages giving a thinner, more refined natural looking nose.
I like to to find out from the patient what they don't like about their nose and what their goals are. Because you complain of a crooked nose you will need your nasal septum and your nasal bones evaluated .I then examine the nose and write a detailed operative plan .
I incorporate the FINNESSE technique which I invented. Bleeding , bruising , and postoperative pain is minimal when compared to traditional technique. It's not uncommon that some patients have no bruising after surgery.

The most telling photo you have showing the nasal deviation is the last one from above. As you can see the top (dorsum) of your nose deviats to the right and then looks to come back to the center. This is lower down from the bones of your nose which at least in the photo appear to be straight. If you are interested in repair this can be improved with a septorhinoplasty. I'd recommend you consult with a facial plastic surgeon to learn about your options and what surgery would entail.
I hope this helps and good luck.
Options for crooked nose
Thanks for your question. Based on your photos, your nose is not terribly deviated, but the portion that is involves a curve of your dorsal septum to the right. In my opinion, your only option to truly straighten your nose would include a septorhinoplasty procedure. If you have breathing issues, these may be improved as well. I would recommend scheduling a consultation and exam with a board certified facial plastic surgeon to find out what options are available to treat all of your concerns.
in regards to things you can do in the meantime, i personally like fillers to help camouflage deflections and deviations in some patients who do not want to have surgery. This is not permanent however - some people are more than happy to do this as they simply do not want surgery. That is another option for you. However, be aware that you may not get the level of correction that you want as what you can achieve with injections is limited.
i hope this helps.
