Still Have Nerve Reactions 6 Months Post Rhinoplasty, Is This Normal?

Hello, I finished all my control dates with my surgeon about a month ago as she said things were going exceptionally well in every department of the healing process. I love my appearance, though occasional involuntary nerve reactions still occur around the tip and cheek areas. I have also seen more action these past few weeks like tripping over stuff (no falling down) and more sudden movements like getting startled by something which cause nerve reactions, also, can I touch the point of my nose?

Dizziness 6 months after rhinoplasty

Numbness on the tip of the nose can persist for some time after rhinoplasty, and can take almost a year before it returns.  The "nerve" symptoms that you are describing would not be a result of a rhinoplasty procedure, particularly if the symptoms have begun more recently.  If you continue to have these symptoms, I recommend speaking with your primary care physician and have it evaluated.
