I had a revision rhinoplasty with cartilage grafts done about 5 months ago. I woke up last night rubbing near my nose. it makes me nervous that I could start rubbing it at night and not realize I was doing it. I was wondering if rubbing your nose in your sleep could damage it 5 months post op? Would I be able to tell if I did damage it? Would it be helpful to tape the cast to it at night or is this useless at 5 months post op? Please HELP SUPER WORRIED!!!!
Can Rubbing Your Nose After Rhinoplasty Damage It?

Without knowing exactly what was done to you it is impossible to state categorically what could happen. As a general rule at 5 months things should be very solid. I would check with your surgeon.
