I am 14 weeks post op. and am experiencing a lot of anxiety regarding ruining the results of my rhinoplasty. To stop my worrying once and for all I was wondering the following: at this stage is it okay to touch my nose to moisturise, exfoliate, wear glasses etc? I also use the following soft facial brush with cleanser on my nose: Will this do any damage either? Thanks for your time!

Anxiety At 4 Months After Rhinoplasty
At about 4 months after your surgery, you should be fine wearing your glasses and using skin moisturizers on your nose.
However, the nasal pore cleaning strips may not be quite safe yet.
I recommend that you consult with your surgeon since he/she knows the full details of your surgery and can assess your recovery status with an examination.
Thank you for your inquiry and the best of wishes to you.
