Cut marks and hole in a nose tip surface after rhinoplasty. Will they heal? (Photo)

I had Rhinoplasty 8 days ago and my cast was removed yesterday. Now there is a small hole and a cut mark on nose surface which looks horrible. Doctor told me that it will go away and gave me T-Bact Cream (Mupirocin Ointment) to apply three times a day and cover with a gauze. Please tell me that will these marks will go away completely as its killing me from inside .

The nasal tip has a very good potential for healing with minimal scarring, however, personally, I would use PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), an autologous growth factor derived from your own blood to ensure favorable healing.
