Scar tissue massage after rhinoplasty

Massage after rhinoplasty for scar tissue is effective especially in the supra tip region of the nose just above the tip. This is the location where significant scar tissue can build up and lead to a polly beak. This is also the area where steroid or Kenalog injection can be placed after rhinoplasty. Massage of the nose in this area after rhinoplasty can break up some of the scar tissue and allow the skin to contract more readily to the underlying cartilage. This is especially important in patients with thick skin or ethnic rhinoplasty patients.
