Rhinoplasty: Q&AAsk a Question
Concerned I Have an Infection 2 Months Following Rhinoplasty?
I had an open rhinoplasty 2 months ago. I had a columellar strut put in using cartilage from my septum. I have been experiencing headaches, congestion and a foul odor coming from one nostril. Could this be an infection of the columellar strut put in? I have read a lot about artificial implants getting infected and having to be removed but could this be the case with a cartilage graft from my septum? thanks

A foul smell is a bad sign.
