Does pressing the nose hard strongly for a long time make the nose flat?
Dear doctor, does pressing the nose hard strongly for a long time make the nose flat? Does twisting the nose hard strongly for a long time make the nose bent? Similarly, do pressing and twisting the nose hard strongly for a long time block and narrow the nasal breathing passages? I am 29 years old. What about the children s nose? Please make me clear. Answers from ENT specialists will be highly appreciated. Thanks!!!

Pressing or twisting the nose does not cause any permanent change in the shape of the nose even if it is a small child.The nose contains cartilage and the bones which maintain the shape of the nose and cannot be changed like this.
Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.

If you look back into this forum a similar query has been answered by me. No, the shape of the nose does not change by pulling it forward or prolonged pressing of the nose as the bony part of the nose will not get altered by any of these forces, neither the cartilaginous part of the nasal framework, unless it is damaged by surgery or granulomatous diseases. Cartilaginous part is rubbery in nature and springs back even after pressing it for a long time.

Does pressing and twisting the nose hard habitually for a long time make the nose flat or bent? Similarly, does pressing and twisting the nose hard habitually for a long time narrow or obstruct the nasal breathing passages?
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.
Dear doctor , if the nose is pressed hard strongly using one s own hands or other s hands for a long time, will the nose turn to become flat. Similarly, if the nose is twisted hard strongly using one s own hands or other s hands for a long time in one direction only, will the nose turn to become bent in that direction? Please doctor, explain me....
