Manipulating a rhinoplasty result with massage is only advisable when recommended by your surgeon.  I ask my patient to massage their osteotomy sites and to sometimes tape their nose in a directional manner. However it is under very clear guidance.  I think you should ask you surgeon specifically about your concerns.
