Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
Should I Tape my Nose at Night After Rhinoplasty?
Hi! I underwent my second Rhinoplasty 2 weeks ago (because of falling tip and callosity on dorsum), and today my doc removed the tapes. He told me to be careful... That's all! And I was careful even after the first operation!
As far as I know, here in Italy it is not common, but I have seen that many international doctors advise to apply tapes at night to raise the tip and to prevent the nose from swelling for many months. What do you suggest? Thank you very much :-)
Surgical technique will determine outcome, not taping
Discuss tape therapy with your surgeon: it could help and it could hurt
Taping works - but ask your doctor!
