Can I reshape my nose with help of my hands?

I really Hate my nose. I have got an african nose who is bigger up (Close the eyes) and smaller down (Close my lips) Ut really looks wierd and ugly. Can I reshape it a little bit so it gets smaller with my hands? I only press it for some seconds. I have started yesterday. Should I stop. Can I break my nose if I do this more or something?

The short answer is no, you cannot reshape your nose with your hands. You can change the shape and size of your nose with a non-surgical rhinoplasty where injectable fillers like Voluma, Radiesse, Sculptra and Juvederm are used to achieve non permanent results lasting anywhere from 4 to 12 months. It is best to see a board certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate your nose and discuss the best rhinoplasty options for a more permanent solution.

No, you cannot mold the shape of your nose with your hands. For a non-surgical intervention, fillers can be used to sculpt the nose, but the tip shape cannot be improved without a surgical intervention. Please see an expert for an in person evaluation. Best, Dr. Emer
