Drooping nose tip (Photo)
Doctor Answers 4
Generally taping after the procedure is to help with swelling and as a barrier between the skin and the external splint. Reliable, long-term tip support is only achieved with cartilage grafting and other intraoperative techniques. It is difficult to say without preoperative and immediate post operative pictures how much ptosis of the tip you are experiencing, but I do not think early removal of the tape would have significantly affected this.
Drooping tip after rhinoplasty
Revision, some advices:
After having analyzed all the info and photos provided to us, i recommend to perform a Secondary Rhinoplasty (not a tip revision) this means (basically) treat the nasal bones and the nasal cartilages.
Therefore i would perform a narrowing of the nasal base (nose osteotomy) and alar and triangular cartilage shaping.
