If the nose is pressed, twisted, stretched, pulled and tugged hard strongly for a long time, will the nose become flat, bent or change in the shape ?

Dear doctor , if the nose is pressed, twisted, stretched, pulled and tugged hard strongly for a long time, for example, for days or months, will the nose become flat, bent or change in the shape? Nose may not become flat, bent or change in shape if nose is pressed, twisted, stretched, pulled and tugged hard only for a short time, for example hours. I am asking you specifically for a long time. I have the fear that if I press, twist, stretch, pull and tug my nose hard either for a short time or for a long time, then my nose will become flat, bend or change in shape. Please explain me medically.

HI,
I do not understand that why you should like this!
Nose has made of cartilage so not much damage or change can take place but structure in the nose definitely may damaged or small bones in the nose may damage badly and create complications.
Long time effect of doing this behavior I think require more statistic data as very few or none of this type of behaviors had recorded in the medical history.
