Why Would I Have Bruising After Just a Cartilage Graft?
I had septoplasty in March but after the swelling had subsided, I'm noticed the tip of my nose had dropped creating a larger dorsal hump - but with no bruising after. My doctor told me that this was a risk that can occur in patients with a severe deviation. In the end, I was unhappy with the appearance and had revision surgery for a cartilage graft to rebuild the lower part. If the surgery was done with cartilage why do I have bruising under my eyes and over the bump on the top of my nose?
