I'm 6 weeks post-op and still have some minor bruising under my eyes that I'm wondering if may be permanent, it's been over a week and the color has not changed at all!  I also have the skin on the bridge of my nose stuck to the bone!  this is causing a dented look and even some small areas of "blue" discolorization.  Am I the only one?????

Hi there,

Not sure if you mean you're six weeks or six days post op... Bruising should not be permanent. Here's what doctors have to say about that. Apparently it can sometimes take up to a year for all the bruising to go away! Here's hoping yours will disappear before that. Please keep us posted!

You should contact your surgeon about the nose skin feeling stuck to the bone. If he or she isn't responsive, please go ahead and post a question (with a photo, very important) in our doctor q&a community.
