Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
Will Removing Nose Splint Early Affect Rhinoplasty Results?
I recently had a Rhinoplasty for narrowing my broad side walls and also for fixing sinus problem. But 3 days after, I took off the splint on my nose because it was irritating me a lot. Is it going to affect the shape of my nose? I can hardly see any difference in my previous and post-surgery nose. Shall I put on the splint back?
Early nasal splint removal by patient can ruin result--Do NOT Do THIS!
This is highly likely to affect the final result.
You will be more swollen after taking splint off too soon
