Is possible to fix this crookedness?
Thanks for your question.
Yes, a revision rhinoplasty would be necessary to further straighten your nose. You have asymmetric nasal bone position and a narrow middle vault that could be corrected to further reposition your nose more centrally.
I would recommend that you consult with a revision rhinoplasty specialist for more information.
I've added a link to finding the right plastic surgeon.

If it's a true frontal view then the left side needs to be augmented with grafts. This will widen the nose. The bump on the right may be the osetochondral junction. If so, you may have short nasal bones, which is another issue, where spreader grafts or dorsal grafts are routinely used at the primary rhinoplasty.
Anyway, a consultation is needed to make the proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

After that, an analysis can be done. The nose has a bony upper1/3-which looks like the issue here;a cartilage middle1/3 and a cartilage lower 1/3.
In your case , the options maybe to simply rasp the bump down or shift the bones back to the midline.
