6 month Rhinoplasty results by Dr. Shervin Naderi, Double Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon and Rhinoplasty Specialist. This beautiful female patient came to us with desires of an improved yet natural looking nose. The thing that bothered her the most was her dorsal hump. She also had a droopy tip with very little support and thick sebaceous skin. Skin thickness plays a huge role in rhinoplasty surgery. Surgical techniques must be adjusted accordingly, and the healing process looks quite different too. In patients with thicker skin, taping is usually recommended to keep swelling and scar tissue at bay. Patients should only tape their nose if their doctor has instructed them to.
