Dear Patient, based on your photograph, spreader grafts may help to avoid inverted V deformity and make your nose look straight, but I would advice to see a facial plastic surgeon to evaluate you and have an exact advice.
Best wishes and good luck.

Great questions!It is not only possible, but it should be the GOAL of a good surgeon to achieve a natural looking outcome. Adding volume to the dorsum of the nose, the radix (upper part between the eyes) is possible by using one of more grafts. Many times cartilage can be taken from the septum. If this isn't enough, extra cartilage can be taken from the ear or the rib. From what I can tell from your picture, you don't need too much.The best place to start is with a board certified facial plastic surgeon in the office. She can explain the changes and details of it to you.Best of luck,
