Was Told to Apply Pressure to the Sides of my Nose After Reduction Rhinoplasty and Osteotomies, Is this Correct?
I'm day 7 post-op & had my splint/stitches removed day 6. I had a reduction rhino/septoplasty/osteotomy to fix my crooked humped nose. My PS & his clinic in S. Korea specialize in rhinos. On day 6 post-op & he recommended using nasal exercises by using my fore fingers and applying direct pressure to the sides of my nose. He said the nasal bones will want to return to their original deviated position, so I should push it back. I was told to do it for 20 min, 6 times a day, 2 weeks. Is he correct?
