Removing Tape After Rhinoplasty or Revision Rhinoplasty

Many rhinoplasty patients out there are instructed to tape their nose on a regular basis to help the nasal skin shrink wrap down to the new shape of the nose. If you haven’t done so yet, please take a look at our online rhinoplasty tutorial on taping the nose following rhinoplasty and revision rhinoplasty. One helpful hint that I wanted to point out with regard to taping the nose has to do with removal of the tape. One recent San Diego rhinoplasty patient of mine inquired about anything she might be able to put on her nose that would aid in taking the tape off more gently. I recommended she try and get some Detachol topical solution. Detachol is an adhesive remover that can be dripped on to the tape, which helps break up the attachment to the skin surface. The tape can then be removed much easier from the nose. In this manner, you can be much more gentle with handling your nose following a delicate rhinoplasty or revision rhinoplasty surgery. You might need to search online to find where to buy Detachol or an equivalent adhesive removal product out there. Good luck and hope this helps some of you nose reshaping patients!
