Moving your lip not likely to cause damage
Thank you for the question! It is unlikely to cause much damage from moving your lip. However, you should follow the instructions of your surgeon as we all have slightly different postoperative instructions.
If you have concerns, an in-person exam with a board-certified specialist would be the best way to assess your needs and obtain reliable medical advice. Best of luck! Dr. Michael Omidi.
It might take a while for your nose and upper lip to soften enough. Some sensations of pulling are common. Best of luck.
Without knowing the details of the surgery or seeing photos of your nose, it is hard to comment specifically, but in general, at 9 weeks following nasal surgery, simple lip movement should not cause damage to your nose. If it did, then it wasn't meant to be in the first place. Best to follow up with your surgeon for an in-person exam. Good luck!
