Does "Nose Up" Work?

"Nose up" device.
I have never seen this and I doubt that it will work since the anatomy of the nose is not changed. To make the tip go up you need a tip plasty which is a 30 minute, under local anesthesia office procedure.
"Nose up" or Rhinoplasty
This device would most likely not work. The primary reason is that the underlying cartilage and bony frame work of the nose is not altered.
Consider consultation with a good rhinplasty surgeon and have it corrected permanently.
You do not have to be a rhinoplasty surgeon to know this will not work. Have a short surgical procedure, enjoy your new nose, and get on with your life.

"nose up" devise
The lating term is caveat emptor or buyer beware! That probaly falls in line with the breast and male genital enhancement pills. A rhinoplasty will lift the tip.
Does 'Nose-up' work?
In all areas of life it pays to keep the following in mind:
"If it seems too good to be true, it probably is."
External splinting can reshape cartilage for a very short period after birth, when it has been used to reshape ears.
Will "Nose Up" device work to rotate the tip?
No this device will not work to effect a permanent change in your tip. Like I like to tell my patients, nasal cartilage is a lot like Rubbermaid products. They both have strong memory and tend to return to their initial shape.
Of course, there are ways to effect nasal tip lift, or rotation, with a rhinoplasty. Visiting with a rhinoplasty specialist would allow for a more in depth discussion of your options.

Will Nose up work?
The cartilage of the tip of your nose has a strong elastic memory and will likely not be changed by this external appliance. Don't waste your money.

You ALREADY knew the answer. Of course it stops working the moment you pull it out of your nose. The only thing such "inventions" lift is the income of those selling them.

No, this device will not work. Consider consultation with a plastic surgeon to see if you are a good candidate for a rhinoplasty.
