As close as you say, josh, but it seems like we're closing in, so I'd give it some more guesses or perhaps a clue (time period?) or not....
I think you are all quite close. I would also accept a pic and the Original Name it was marketed under. C'mon kids get those guesses in.

Yep.

An unusual early 20th century French nasal 'Rectificateur' which would have been applied after nasal fracture or facial injury. The apparatus was placed over the nose and held secure with straps around the back of the head. The idea was that by adjusting the screws on the nose piece, pressure could be applied to recreate symmetry after injuries which might have deviated the nasal septum. Quite likely completely useless, but a fascinating glimpse into historical medical practice. It comes with the original box which is marked "Rectificateur 'Nice Nose' Brevete"!

Good Doctor I believe that means that you are up.

Yep, expat. I think so, but I don't think I ever want to encounter this piece of medical equipment. UGH!!! Scary.
