Will Taping My Nose Help My Rhinoplasty Result?

I'm 3 weeks post-op and am still taping my nose as I fear that the bump I had on my nose will reappear. This happened to me after my first rhinoplasty. Will taping my nose keep it from going back to it's original shape?

I don't personally have my patients use tape or splints past the first week or so.  I would see what your surgeon reccomends and then follow those instructions to get the best result
