Taping after rhinoplasty
Taping the nose after a rhinoplasty can help to reduce swelling. It will not, by itself, help to support the tip three months after your procedure. Your nose will change quite a bit over the next six to twelve months and I hope that you achieve the result that you desire.

Drooping nose 3 months post-op septorhinoplasty
Taping at any stage of the healing will not keep the tip from drooping permanently. I have not seen any drooping tip at 3 months post op that can turn up during the later stage of the healing period. If you are really bothered by the drooping tip, be prepared for a possible revision. Consult your surgeon about your options.
I feel like the tip of my nose is dropping, will taping help?
Taping at this point will not alter the final result at least as far as experience has shown.

Taping your nose
Taping the nose will not help alter the projection nor the rotation of the nasal tip. Consider speaking with your surgeon about the outcomes of the surgery.
