What surgery should I get?
Thank you for question.
How the Rhinoplasty operation is performed?
There are different kinds of rhinoplasty operations however we can divide them as the one that requires bone excision and the one that does not need bone excision. The main fact that we classify the rhinoplasty operations like that is that the results and postoperative period is associated closely with this fact. In the operations like “nasal tip correction”, “simple rhinoplasty” there is no need for a bone excision however these minor operations cannot be beneficial for everyone. The operation type is need to be determined by the surgeon according to needs of the patient. In these minor operations the rhinoplasty is performed with closed method. The bone and the cartilage tissues are not involved in the surgery directly. Small nasal bumps can be removed in these operations.
In the operation that needs the bone and cartilage tissues to be involved; open approach is used. In the procedures with open approach, the size, shape and functionality of the nose can be improved. The big nasal bumps can be removed and septal deviations can be corrected providing a better nasal airway.
All the best,
How do we deal with facial symmetry?

Facial asymmetry - what to do?
Facial asymmetry is one of the most common reasons for a consultation with a plastic surgeon. Sometimes, this takes the form of a nasal asymmetry, or an asymmetry of the eyelids, or other parts of the face. The decision as to what to do depends largely on the degree of asymmetry and exactly what structures are affected.
Some types of facial asymmetry can be corrected, others cannot. While the photo you posted is a place to start, it's not comprehensive enough to determine what is the best option. Additionally, the photo appears to have been taken with a wide angle lens, such as is commonly found on a phone - these are notorious for distorting facial proportions and giving a false impression of the actual shape of the face.
Ultimately, you would be best-served by a face-to-face consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate your facial proportions and listen to your particular concerns, and then come up with a plan of action for how to address those.
