Why is my face numb after a rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty and numbness
Post Rhinoplasty numbness
It is typically expected that the nose itself (especially the tip) might have a bit of numbness for some weeks or more after a rhinoplasty, but this is all only temporary. Facial numbness is not an ordinary or expected part of the recovery process of this procedure. You should bring this to the attention of your plastic surgeon and be re-evaluated right away.
