What Are the Scientific Reasons Pressure Won't Shrink Nose Cartilage in the Long Run?

There are a lot of people asking questions about using pressure via nose contraptions to shrink their noses. I hear the same answer from all plastic don't do it, it doesn't work, get rhinoplasty, or move on with your life. None of which really give that much scientific information. I was wondering if someone could give biological reasons-Esp since as one ages collagen decreases, which I would surmise to reduce the 'spring' factor in the nose...possibly making it effective? Thanks!!
