Hi I recently had rhinoplasty 4 weeks ago and had a hump removed on the bridge of my nose. Can you tell me why there is now a brown patch on my skin where the surgeon has rasped the bone. Is this permanent? Thanks to the PS's in advance for replying it's much appreciated you giving up your time on here to help worried rhino patients.

Brown patch on nose after Rhinoplasty
The brown patch, on the skin of your nose, after your Rhinoplasty is most likely the result of a bruise within the nasal tissue where your bump was rasped.
Brown Spots after Rhinoplasty
These brown spots do generally dissipate over time. The breakdown of hemoglobin from blood leads to hemosiderin and other byproducts. Bruises often start red, then turn purple, brown, green and yellow then disappear. Hopefully, this will be the case for you.
Dr. L is on the money. but remember if it doesn't go away it needs to be looked at by your doctor. good luck.
