your nasal scar can be revised but it requires an examination of the scar and the nose to tell you how much this would cost. The airway obstruction will be covered by insurance but the remaining cosmetic portion will not. The nose can be made more attractive if you wish. See a very experienced rhinoplasty surgeon who does natural looking noses.
The slit defect of your left nostril can be corrected through your insurance as a scar revision; However, if you want to make your entire nose look better, you will require a rhinoplasty surgery which you will have to pay for: Cost ranges from 7 to 12K depending on what you need to have done. A consultation is very helpful to provide exact details and cost of surgery.
