I've seen people put tape on their nose after rhinoplasty and was wondering what purpose it serves? Should I be doing that?

I got a septorhinoplasty 4 weeks ago

Tape after nasal surgery

Check with your doctor for their recommendations but generally, If you are more than a week post surgery and don't have any asymmetric swelling then the tape is of no value.
