Thank you for your question.
I would highly recommend consulting with your surgeon with any questions or concerns you may have and before you do anything to your nose so he can answer these questions and do an examination of the nose. After a rhinoplasty, the nasal tissues are still healing and you should be careful with the skin on the nose during this time. I would definitiely limit your sun exposure and apply high SPF when outside. I wouldn’t recommend pulling the dry skin off, if anything maybe try applying a small amount of hypoallergenic lotion to the area to moisturize it but it is hard to tell without seeing your nose therefore, I would take your surgeons advice after he examines you.
Best of luck in your recovery!
