Taping of the nose is unlikely to improve any irregularities. You are very early in the post-op period and I would give it time to heal.
It is not likely that taping the nose will correct any small imperfection however it is really way too early to look for a final result. You will not see a final result for months after your surgery and perhaps up to one year or more so be patient
