Rhinoplasty candidate? #nosejob
This is not really a question of need it is desire. There are many, many things that can be done to shape a nose with surgical intervention. Having had a Rhinoplasty I understand the desire to change something that bothers you. I had reconstructive and cosmetic nose surgery and I was very aware of the exact things I did not like. I would recommend that you soul search and try to identify the exact things you do not like about your nose and convey those to your proposed surgeon.
Well-performed rhinoplasty surgery may result in hump reduction and a more pleasing nasal appearance.
You appear to have a profile hump, and a droopy nasal tip. Issues such as this may be improved by expert rhinoplasty surgery.
Hope this is helpful for you.

Rhinoplasty for downward appearing nasal tip
The down turned nasal tip can be addressed with the rhinoplasty procedure where a variety of maneuvers are performed to raise the tip. A tip rhinoplasty involves suture techniques applied to the lower lateral cartilages. It's also important to release the depressor septi ligament which may be pulling the tip down with animation.
