Can taping your nose have adverse effects?

Taping nose after rhinoplasty
Post operative taping of the nose after rhinoplasty will help to reduce swelling. Without it, the skin would be lifted by the swelling and it would take a lot longer for it to correct itself. It is better to ask your surgeon about his preference of taping.
