Should I be concerned that the tapes have fallen off? It has been 5 days since the initial surgery. I didn't have a splint and I believe the healing process is coming along quite nicely. I have an appointment to see my Doctor on Tuesday should I retape?

Rhinoplasty tape falling off
Without actually examining you, my guess is that it won't cause any significant problem. Taping after rhinoplasty helps to prevent excessive swelling. Even after splint removal, I have my patients continue taping for a short period. Check with your surgeon to see if they want you to reapply the tape.
