PS Upturned Nose With Tape At 3 Weeks Post-Op, What's The Reason For That?

Nasal taping can be used to maintain the position of your tip
Nasal taping can be used for a variety of reasons. Like casting a bone following a break, nasal taping is used to maintain the position of the newly created nasal tip and dorsum, and to help prevent significant swelling following rhinoplasty surgery. I am not entirely certain why your nose needs to be re taped at three weeks time, especially if you are hoping that your tip will fall to a more natural appearing location. I would ask your surgeon if there are any concerns they have with regards to your particular post operative course or if this is standard for their rhinoplasty patients.
