I Have a Cyst Inside Nostril After Rhinoplasty 1 Month Ago. How Long Will It Take to Heal?

I had rhinoplasty one month ago and I developed a cyst or some abnormal mass inside one of my nostril on top of the suture I think. It seems to swell up at times and obstructs my breathing. I wanted to ask what should I do or how long will it take to heal. My surgeon told me itll heal in a week, its been more than a month now. At one point it had mucous coming out of it. I thought it was infected and am taking Augmentin 500 mg TID.what should I do???

You need to be evaluated by your surgeon. We cannot recommend treatment without seeing you, but this is obviously not normal.

Any infection after surgery needs to be properly diagnosed and treated, and you need to be evaluated by your surgeon for appropriate recommendations.

Hi Sarah,

You should consult with your rhinoplasty surgeon.  Hopefully the Augmentin controls your infection.  The area needs to be examined.  Good luck and be well.
