Permanent Change in Nose Shape After Nose Huggie?

Can something like the Nose Huggie really alter the shape of your nose permanently? It's basically a nose clip, that they claim will change the shape of your nose overtime.

While a gimmick product such as the Nose Huggie might compress the skin temporarily, thereby changing the shape of your nose, it is extremely unlikely to result in a permanent and cosmetic change. Be careful of products that promise a great deal but have no testing or other verifiable proof to back up their claims.

These devices have found limited application as longterm nose reshaping procedures. The gold standard remains a rhinoplasty.
