7 days post op closed rhinoplasty: will pinching the tip of your nose affect its final shape?

Massage after rhinoplasty
Dear shlct, did your doctor advise you to massage or press of your nose? If not it is a mistake. Do not do it. Applying external pressure to the nose after rhinoplasty may have some benefit if it is done legitimately. Otherwise it may cause some unwanted effects (like asymmetries). Please ask your doctor what to do and never touch or twist you nose with the decision of yourself.
