Nasal tip stiff 1 year after surgery
The nose, after a rhinoplasty, usually tends to soften up after 1 year. If you are still having difficulty or pain you should be re-checked to rule out a problem.
Stiff Nose After Rhinoplasty
In some cases, after a rhinoplasty your nose can be made stiffer. This is especially in cases where grafting to support the nasal tip was performed. Typically, noses tend to soften up at the 6 to 9 month mark but some noses take longer.
