Does "Nose Up" Work?

Only surgery will change the shape of your nose
Nose Up Is a Marketing Gimmick and Does Not Work
This type of device won’t change the appearance of your nose, because it won’t impact the under lying bone and cartilage. Gimmicks like this are a dime a dozen. They’re not intended to fix your nose, but instead to separate you from your money.
If you’re serious about changing the appearance of your nose consultation, with a board certified plastic surgeon is appropriate. This surgeon can explain the risk benefits alternatives and possible complications associated with rhinoplasty surgery.
no it doesn't...
There are 2 main types of rhinoplasty:
1) cosmetic primary noses with no previous surgery (these should always be done CLOSED aka SCARLESS.
2) Botched or Revision noses with history of previous surgery ( these usually require a reconstructive surgery which requires open rhinoplasty with an external scar).
If you are a primary nose with no previous surgery, you should ONLY consider closed scarless rhinoplasty (preferred by actresses and celebrities) because there is no risk of external scarring and much less healing and recovery time. The goal is to finesse and enhance the nose without drastic change. Meaningful refinement is the key. All the same surgical maneuvers your nose requires can be performed with a skilled closed scarless surgeon.
Seek counsel with a board certified plastic surgeon who performs closed scarless rhinoplasty as 100% of his surgical practice so you know you can guarantee the expertise. (aka don't get your nose done by a breast surgeon or a facelift surgeon). Doing your nose the first time with the right surgeon is the key to avoid a botched or revision surgery in the future. All the best!

The device is not known to provide any long term benefit. Even short term results are highly debated.
Nose shaping device
Unfortunately there is no device that will make a lasting change in the nose. Cartilage has memory, which is why if you push your nose to the side it will snap back into place. The only means to change the nose is via an operation, or temporarily via fillers aka non-surgical rhinoplasty.
All the best
Silicone nose shaping lift grip devices are not a substitute for rhinoplasty surgery or non-surgical rhinoplasty.
“Nose Up” and similar devices do not permanently change the structure of the nose
Likely won't work
