Will pushing upwards on the tip of your septum with as much force as you would rub your nose with make it droop at all?

Probably not

That's a very interesting question! So just pushing down on your tip once probably wouldn't do anything. There are a lot of ligaments in your nose holding it all together! Now let's say you pushed down 50x a day for 10 years, then you might start to see some changes. If you were in an accident with a lot of sudden force then things can get shift around. Hope this helps!~Dr. Sieber
