Strange White Patch Developed on my Nostril After Open Rhinoplasty
Byon 26 Aug 2013
I had open rhinoplasty 8 months ago. A strange white patch developed on my right nostril at the incision going up to the bottom of the tip of my nose. It is slightly raised and has a red outline (see photo attached). I showed the Doctor that performed the surgery and he said it was completely normal and caused from cartilage or bone putting pressure on the skin and nothing could be done about it. Not satisfied with his answer I ask about it again a few months later he said that it was probably there before the surgery and I probably just never noticed it until now. Has anyone else experienced this before or know what it may be? At first I thought it might be dead or dying skin but I am not sure. Besides that issue I not happy at all with the results of the surgery and want to look into getting a revision. Do you think that the skin discoloration or white patch can be fixed with the revision or could it make it worse?
