The nose grows during the growth spurt of puberty, and a rhinoplasty is safe
once the nose and the face and the patient have stopped growing: as early as
about 15 for women and 16 for men. Of course, the patient has to be
emotionally ready for the procedure as well.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Your nose requires some advanced techniques
It seems to me that your nose would benefit from a significant "deprojection." That means bringing the entire nose back closer to your face. Look at the simulated modification that I made in the video link. Ignoring the hump for the moment, you can see that the tip of your nose moved significantly closer to your face. Then, the hump was also taken down.
You have a little bit of what we call "tethering" of the upper lip. That's when the upper lip pulls forward, right where it meets the bottom of the nose. If the tip of the nose is successfully deprojected, the tethering tends to lessen, or go away.
Making a predictable deprojection of the nose is not something that every plastic surgeon can accomplish, so be sure to see photos of the doctor's other patients who had impressive deprojections, before deciding on a surgeon.
