How do I perform a pressure massage after nose surgery?

I would like the best result possible from the rhinoplasty . I read about the influence of pressure massage on the final outcome. Do you recommend pressure massages? How are they done and what is their effect?

I don't recommend massage after a rhinoplasty. I do think they're at best useless, and may displace a graft or lead to a suture failure if done too vigourosly. But this is my own opinion!

in the first four weeks, a full month, after my experience, no pressure is needed to be applied on the operated nose! all the processes in the nasal framework, after the rhinoplasty will be naturally carried on.
