I have several nose clips for reshaping: Nasofix, Nose Right, Nose Up, Nose Roller, Metal Nose Reshaper, etc.If I use this consistently all summer, using them to mold my nose into the shape I want, and heat my nose using a heating pad in between or even during uses of the nose clips, can I somewhat change the shape of the cartilage at the end of my nose? Can I reduce my dorsal hump, slim my nose, or slightly lift the droopy tip of my nose? What could be done as far as rhinoplasty for my nose? Could I use heat and nose molds? I want to use the heat and nose molds now, and then maybe get rhinoplasty in around 6 months if that doesn't work. What could be done? I'm going to try it anyway, so please be honest.

Rhinoplasty is needed to reshape nasal cartilage
Using nose clips and heat will not reshape your nose. The cartilage must be reshaped and repositioned to create a change in contour at the tip as well as the dorsal hump. From the photos you submitted it appears you could have a nice improvement from cosmetic rhinoplasty. I recommend scheduling a consult with an experienced rhinoplasty surgeon to discuss your options.
