Will Scrunching Nose After Septorhinoplasty Affect Outcome?

Had a septorhinoplasty. I'm at 6 days and have a cast but have been slightly scrunching nose because it is very itchy. Will this affect outcome of nose/create a bump? Should I be worried? I get stitches out tomorrow.

This should not affect the outcome of your surgery. I would recommend communicating any concerns to your surgeon, as they know the extent of your procedure and exactly what was performed. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

      I have only seen one nose changed by facial movements out of hundreds and hundreds of rhinoplasties performed.

Movement of your nose will have no effect on your rhinoplasty result or degree of swelling post op.  Atlanta Plastic Surgeon Dr. Z

Scrunching your nose should not affect your outcome in the long run. With swelling it may be difficult to do so.
