The gentle curve of the hump on her dorsum was her main complaint.  Removing that small part of the nose can make quite a difference to the overall appearance of the face.

Questioner: What is the purpose of massaging nose after rhinoplasty? Do I need to do it if nose is uneven in swelling?
I went to my doctor and forgot to ask him about the unevenness in the swelling of my nose after my rhinoplasty. Since bandage removal post op to now, 7 weeks post op, the right side of nose is still more swollen than the left, and its always been like that. I head about massaging the nose on this website, should I do it? Do some doctors say its mandatory or is it just a recomendation always to help reduce swelling?t I'm just paranoid about my constant uneven swelling on my right side of my nose.

Dr. Denenberg's answer: Don't massage your nose
Hi,
I know doctors disagree about this, but I'll give you my 2 cents. Don't massage the nose. The doctor put the cartilages and bones in a certain position, and you want them to stay where they were put. Don't push them around by massaging the nose. It won't do anything to decrease the swelling or speed up the maturation of the scar tissue.

It can't help, and it might hurt.
