These marks all flatten out and do nothing permanent (otherwise professional swimmers would have a big problem). The only break of the nose would follow a hit directly to the center point of the goggles. ...Read more
Does blowing your nose to the side or pushing or twisting nose to the side while blowing nose change the level of straightness or shape of the nose?
Are the nostril parts of your nose (the part people get a nose piercing on. not the septum) considered soft tissue or cartilage or what?
Possible: Regular septal surgery shouldn't change the shape if the surgery was done just to correct a deviation due to obstruction. Sometimes the nasal bones or the cartilages of the tip are modified, usually for cosmetic reasons along with fixing the deviated septum.This is called a septorhinoplasty.

Absolutely: A well-done rhinoplasty should be tailored to suit the patient's needs, and should not be a "cookie-cutter" approach. The nose should look natural and be harmonious with the rest of the face. If narrowing the bridge is all that is needed, that is all that should be done. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
