Nose huggies are the latest development in at-home rhinoplasty solutions. In the past, people who had large noses and wanted to reduce the size had to seek professional rhinoplasty surgery. Nose huggies offer an alternative. The clip is as easy to use as a clothespin and has foam guards so that the nose is not damaged. You can purchase nose huggies in stores or make one at home first to test the fit.

A homemade nose huggie is one alternative to nose reduction surgery.

Step 1

Cut one foam earplug in half lengthwise with craft or utility scissors. Cut the foam cleanly and evenly.

Step 2

Place strong glue on the flat edge of each half of the earplug. Open the mini clothespin and affix the halves, one on each side, to the teeth of the clothespin. Position the foam earplugs with the glue side facing the clothespin teeth. Close the clothespin and allow the glue to dry completely.

Step 3

Open the clothespin and wiggle the foam pieces to ensure that both sides are securely attached to the clothespin. Place the open clothespin over the bottom cartilage area of your nose. Release the clothespin and allow it to hold the nose. Do not leave the nose huggie on for longer than 15 to 20 minutes at one time.
