this is potentially correctable without surgery. injecting a bit of a filler such as radiesse on the left side of the tip would make it appear straight. it is a simple procedure and is alot less traumatic and expensive than surgery.

I would like something more permanent, with filers I would have to go back every so often?

I have read somewhere that just correcting the tip of the nose can be a complicated procedure, and is more expensive than rhinoplasty?
