Will Putting Continuous Pressure on My Nasal Bone Induce Bone Resoprtion?

Molding the nose.
Although it may seem to make sense, I am not aware of a study which has shown this. Depite this, there are a proliferation of products on the market that claim to mold the nose.

Putting Pressure on your Nose will not Reduce a Nasal Hump
Hi Amman in Amman, 11,
No. Continuous external pressure on top of the nose will not reduce a hump. However, one could imagine that if someone wears a specially designed mask continuously for years, then yes the nose and face will change shape gradually over time. Neck, feet, and other body parts have slowly been altered by applying pressure over time. In practice, only surgical or nonsurgical rhinoplasty could realistically reshape a nasal hump. Speak with a rhinoplasty surgeon to help determine appropriate options for you. Best of luck.
Putting Continuous Pressure on My Nasal Bone Induce Bone Resoprtion
Interesting question. Yes it is possible but extremely unlikely to occur. Where did you come up with this idea? The amount of continual pressure needed to be exerted on the nasal bones and the length of time is not realistic therefore I doubt you could cause nasal bone resorption.
Instead of Massage, Consider a Non-Surgical Solution to your Bump
Consult with an expert who does nearly only noses. Ask about " fillers". It may be appropriate if your bump is indeed very small.
Today's fillers are great. Less cost than surgery; no down time and you get an instant result.
Leave the massage work to physical therapists.
Best wishes to everyone in one of my favorite cities, Amman.

Nasal bone pressure
Putting pressure on the nose will really not do anything. If you have a small bump, surgery really is the only option to remove it.
Reducing the size of a nasal hump
The short answer to this question is that it is unlikely to help this process. However, if you have had a previous rhinoplasty, then yes continuous pressure on an area of fullness or small hump can often reduce the size of the bump. I hope this information helps.
Continuous Pressure on Nose Will Not Induce Bone Resorption of Bump
The very short answer to your question whether pressure on the nose will make a small bump go away is NO. Surgery is the only way to remove a nasal bump. It can be camouflaged by using a small amount of injectable filler above and/or below the bump. Good luck and be well.
