I just got my nose done a week ago and I really want to use a pore strip on it. Would it be okay to do it this early on?
Can I Use a Cleansing Pore Strip on my Nose After One Week of my Rhinoplasty?

Cleansing Nasal Skin After Rhinoplasty
If you have thick, oily skin I prefer to not use taping on those patients post operatively as they can have significant acne formation.
Do NOT use a Pore Cleansing Strip immedately after Nose Surgery
In Nose Surgery the skin is removed from the underlying structures, the bones and cartilages are modified and the incisions are closed. With time, the skin reattaches with scar tissue to the underlying nose. You should not engage in any activity in which the skin is moved or lifted off the nose in the early period after surgery. This includes not worrying about your pores and using pore cleansing strips.
Cleansing Pore Strips on Nasal Skin 1 Week Post Rhinoplasty
I would nor recommend using the pore strips for at least 1 month after your rhinoplasty. I suggest you talk to your surgeon or a dermatologist regarding skin care at this time.

I do not recommend pore strips to my patients. You should check with your doctor first of course. It may be damaging to the overlying skin which is usually swollen and a bit numb.
Biore Nasal Strips
Do not use the Biore (or similar) nasal strips after a rhinoplasty for at least one month. In the initial healing period you can harm your skin and worst yet, your nasal tip. It is almost like waxing. You can cause irritation of the skin leading to more swelling or you can move the nose making it crooked.
