Can I Wear Reading Glasses on Supratip Area 11 Weeks After Septorhinoplasty?

hi, i had my septo rhinoplasty on may 30th 2013. can i wear glasses now? will it affect the result? also i wore glasses for 10 minutes today on my supratip area and noticed a slight dent in the swelling or cartilage i dont know but it left a little red mark there and a small dent. So I'm scared that i'll affect the results in any way.

I generally advise my patients to refrain from wearing glasses for the first 6 weeks after surgery. After 11 weeks, everything should be ok. I would recommend following up with your surgeon, as they may have specific guidelines they would like you to follow. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Wearing reading glasses after a rhinoplasty - not a problem as long as they are light

There should be no problems wearing light reading glasses after a rhinoplasty.   The indentations are just from soft tissue swelling and will not affect your final result.
