Zigzag Lines After Dermal Graft Removal
I had a sebaceous cyst in my dermal graft placed over my bridge in a revision rhinoplasty operation. I had a red mark on my nose prior to the cyst, which I was told wouldn't go away unless I had laser. Because of the sebaceous cyst, the surgeon decided it was best to remove the derma graft. I removed the tape last night, and was ready to see a dent where the graft was, but saw indented zig zag-shaped lines instead.
Will these flatten out or can I expect to live with them? The redness is still there, but the surgeon feels it was related to the graft, and will dissipate over time. Is this true? I have lost faith in my surgeon, and was hoping some information provided to me may help ease my concern.
