Will Constant Nose Massaging Cause Change in Nose Shape?

If a person were to rub, massage, press on, push on and sometimes hit the bridge of their nose, would this cause any change, enlargement, or any other appearance change to the nose?

If not, can you explain scientifically why this wouldn't cause that change? I have been doing this for almost two years, I have had a few nose bleeds, no swelling or bruising.

Now I think that the bones in the bridge of my nose look bigger and the shape has changed. Please prove that I didn't do this as it is causing me a lot of anxiety.
