 Photos would help in the evaluation.  What caused your nose to be bent and overly narrow?  Was it trauma or previous Rhinoplasty?  These are just a few of the things that I'd need to know before making any sort of recommendation.  You might consider having a few consultaions for Rhinoplasty.

without an examination it is impossible to say. typically the inside is crooked as well, so that a septoplasty is performed and some of the cartilage is used as a spreader graft to expand the narrow mid portion of your nose if indicated.

Rhinoplasty for the crooked nose involves straightening the crooked septum and widening the narrow bridge with grafts.

I'd recommend that you resubmit your question and include a couple of photos of your nose (front and side views).   It would be much easier to provide you with advice on surgical correction if I could see what your nose looks like.
