Will a nose become flat if it is pressed or twisted 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?

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
This is something impossible to attain with those type of exercises. Better not to meddle much with your nasal structure or it might cause breakage of the cartilageno-bony junction posing problems later on.
Take care
