I had a nose job 10 years ago due to fall accident. My nose looks so crooked. Can this be fixed? (photos)

Correcting a deviated nose
Crooked nose after rhinoplasty, revision rhinoplasty, non surgical rhinoplasty
Your right side nasal bone and upper lateral cartilage is collapsed in, and can be corrected surgically by remodelling the bridge with spreader grafts and revision osteotomy.
Interestingly, as the asymmetry seems quite localised, if you breathe OK you might be able to have it corrected non surgically by filler injection. I believe that filler could be used to largely correct the dent and make the bridge look fairly straight.
This is not expensive, and while it needs to be repeated over time, this correction typically lasts for at least 2 years.
I think it would be a good idea for you to visit an experienced rhinoplasty specialist in your area, and see if this can be done. If it can, its a simple, fairly cheap and effective solution for you.
All the very best

Fixing a crooked nose after an accident
To straighten a crooked nose, medial and lateral osteotomies of the nasal bones need to be performed. Occasionally a cartilaginous spreader graft harvested from inside the nose can be used to realign the upper lateral cartilages as well. For many examples of crooked nose repair in our practice, please see the link below.
