Massaging a nose after Rhinoplasty is common in the Czech Republic. Plastic surgeons get their patients doing it from about 2 weeks onward. The massages aren't just a 'tickle' but can sometimes be a little painful.
The surgeons say (in general) that massaging a nose after surgery doesn't disturb the delicate work done and that massages prevent the formation of scar tissue and help the new nose 'settle in'.
But after reading some of the discussions here, it seems that post-operative massage is not that common elsewhere! What's everyone's opinion on this? Thank you.
