I'm a 14 year old girl, I've had rhinoplasty plans for about a year now. One half of the nose is like a bigger version of the other half. The nostril is bigger, more cartilage in the tip, I've got a bump on that side which I haven't got on the other side. Yesterday the bigger half of my nose felt numb, it was tingling and I couldn't stop it. I tried with cold water but it didn't stop. Was this my nose growing? (I've been feeling this for 10 hours) Cass

Can I feel my Nose growing

Interesting question. Facial asymmetry is not uncommon. What does concern me is this 'tingling' sensation accompanied by one sided growth of your nose. I would highly recommend an exam by a licensed physician as soon as possible. Best of luck, Dr. H
