Cutting tape after rhinoplasty
Cutting tape is typically all right except you don't want to expose any of the nasal structures as this will allow more localized swelling the area; your surgeon is trying to avoid this side effect in order to minimize your recovery. Please see your surgeon for specific dressing instructions.
