How do you handle a Rhinoplasty patient who cannot use a cast or tape on their nose?
I have dealt with this type of issue before. If you do require a splint and cannot tolerated the adhesive, a thermaplast splint can be molded to your new nasal shape and gently secured with a bolster. I've also used this in cases of severe nasal trauma without issue.

Cast nose after rhinoplasty
Tape and a cast across the bridge of the nose is only required if osteotomies are needed during the revision rhinoplasty. Not all revision rhinoplasties require osteotomies.
