First there was Rhinoplasty, then there was Injection Rhinoplasty. And now Acupuncture Rhinoplasty? Sadly the answer is no. However there was a lot of interest at the turn of the century in using external appliances to reshape the nose. This was analogous to dental braces. However braces work directly on the teeth and not the intervening soft tissues, and here is why this type of intervention doesn't work for the nose.
